Over thirty (30) pupils of Saint Peter’s Catholic Primary School Esuk Mbat, Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross River State have been given new pair of school uniform, exercise books, pen, and pencil each by an NGO, Atycare Initiative.
The NGO which is registered with the CAC to alleviate the plight of the down trodden at the grassroot level said it chose the institution because of its peculiar learning difficulties.
Appreciating the gesture on behalf of the students and staff, the Deputy Head Teacher of Saint Peter’s Catholic Primary School Esuk Mbat which was founded in 1935, Mrs. Eno Inyang Umo said they’re God’s sent.
According to her they’re “overwhelmed by their gesture” which she described as “not very common among the NGOs.
“No NGO has done this before, since I became the Deputy Head Teacher of this school, I have not been seen anyone, the Atycare Initiative came to us and requested to measure the children, sometimes last week and today they are here with the cloths, I thank them very much and God would bless them.”
The founder of Atycare Initiative, Miss Atim Eso told CrossRiverWatch shortly after donating the items worth thousand of naira to the pupils that, the reason for the gesture was not only to give back to the society but out of her passion for humanity which gave birth to the organization in 2018.
She said, “I had a vision to support humanity because I have so much passion for humanity. In 2018 the organization started, I used my fund, my friends, my social media space, my family and most importantly my skills to give back to the society and God is always by my side in every step I am taking.
“For now, we don’t have funding, we have been making uniforms for pupils since inception of this organization in 2018, and so, we hope to be doing it every month, but we don’t know how the funding will come but we believe that if God gives you a vision, he would make a way out for you.”
