Covenant University Supports Orphan’s Education, Welfare
In furtherance of its Corporate Social Responsibilities and community development activities, Covenant University on June 15, 2017, paid a visit to the children and staff of Ijamido Children’s Home, Ota and made a donation towards their welfare and educational uplifting.
On hand to welcome the University’s 3-man delegates to the Home were the Coordinator, Education and Welfare, Mrs. Eromosele Adetutu, the Administrative Officer, Mr. Noble Ibeji and some of the children.
The University officials led by the Chairman, Covenant University Community Development Impact Initiative Committee (CUCDIIC), Dr. Michael Agarana, informed the hosts that charity towards Orphanages was one of the Committee’s mandates, adding that though, it was their first visit at the Home, it won’t be the last. He thereafter, made a cash presentation on behalf of the University to the Home.
Responding, Mrs. Eromosele expressed gratitude to the University and seized the opportunity to request for scholarship for some of the children to further their education, particularly at Covenant University.
The Administrative Officer later took the Committee members on a guided tour of the Home which was founded in 1958 by Late Chief (Mrs.) Virginia Irene Willoughby, the Yeye Abiye of Ota Land (1904-1995). He explained that the Home presently caters for 176 children, adding that over 600 children have passed through the Home since inception.
