A set of candidates who participated in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have donated food items to the Citadel of Grace Mission International Orphanage home in Igando, Lagos.
The over one hundred and fifty candidates attended Success Mandate Pre-Varsity Academy which organizes a Mandate to Save-A-Soul Project to orphanage homes every year.
Food stuffs and items donated by the candidates include; bags of rice, tubers of yam, vegetable oil, noodles, custard, toiletries, and baby care products.
Mr. Ken Anoruo, Coordinator of Success Academy and the Founder of Save-A-Soul Charity Outreach, while speaking during the presentation of the items, said his dream is to continuously encourage the younger generation to imbibe the culture of generosity and empathy.
“This is the 10th year since we started this project and by the grace of God, the impact has been tremendous. What you see here is gift of love contributed by students in our tutorial academy for the welfare of the children in this orphanage home.
“We do this to encourage them to develop the attitude of giving and to let them know that a little gift of love can make a meaningful impact in the life of the less privileged persons,” he stated.
Expressing gratitude to the candidates and their coordinator, the Head of the orphanage home, Mrs. Christy Obehi stated that it is always a delight every year to see different set of candidates come to donate food items to the orphanage home.
