ASA Health Partners, a non-governmental organization (NGO) on Thursday, October 26, 2023 provided support to a number of orphans in Yobe State.
In a statement released on Thursday in Damaturu, the Executive Director of ASA Health Partners, Mr. Mohammed Annur, announced that the organization had voluntarily supported orphans and vulnerable children in the Nayinawa community of Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
Mr. Annur explained that many of the beneficiaries had dropped out of school for various reasons.
“We felt it was important to provide them with uniforms and writing materials to encourage them to return to school.
“We also want to promote girl child education so that they can reach their full potential in the future,” he said.
Mal Abdullahi Bula, the Focal Person for the I jel Foacal Program; Musa Kolere, Secretary of the Committee on Education; and Bashi Ali, Director of Planning at the Yobe State Ministry of Budget and Economic Planning, were among the dignitaries who presented the materials to the beneficiaries.
Mr. Annur appealed to all stakeholders, including government officials, development partners, philanthropists, and well-meaning individuals, to support and promote girl child education in Yobe State.
