The founder of Wendoo School Breakfast Empowerment, a non-governmental organization NGO, Maureen Bond has promised that her organization is poised to provide more pupils with free breakfast, as schools resume in earnest.

She said that the commitment of her NGO to these children remains unwavering, as the organization believes that “no child should ever have to face hunger and the quality of their education should not suffer as well. Both go hand in hand.”

Maureen stated this in press statement geared towards the resumption of new academic session by pupils in various schools, where her NGO has been on the forefront in providing breakfast to pupils in some schools.

“Since February 2023, Wendoo School Breakfast has provided sumptuous meals weekly to over 250 school children at Nkeze Primary School, and we need to expand to include Ugboko Primary School and Comprehensive Secondary Schools all in Idumuje-Ugboko.”

Bond said ”for many children, the return to school is marked by the excitement of new friends, engaging lessons, and boundless possibilities. However, for others, it can be a time of uncertainty, especially when it comes to something as fundamental as having enough to eat.”

According to her “ensuring that no child goes hungry is our aim. This can only be realistically achieved with donations and support from organisations and well-meaning individuals. Feeding the children will help them concentrate better in school so that they can get the full benefit of their education. We are poised to continue the feeding programme at the beginning of October 2023.

“We aim to increase the number of feeding events to 3 times a week. The dream is to expand the programme in Idumuje Ugboko to the second primary school in the village, and to the secondary school as well. A state-wide reach would be the ultimate target.

While soliciting for financial assistance from well-meaning Nigerians to aid the organization to continue its laudable work, she said: ”your financial donation means so much to us. It costs about NGN 250,000 weekly to feed these school children. You are a vital part of these children’s life journey. A journey that brings smiles to little faces, eases the burdens of struggling families, and creates a brighter tomorrow for our community.”

She disclosed that the aim of her organization is to provide a mobile library to serve the schools in the area and the community at large, while providing access to books, computers, printing services, letter writing sessions and use of the Internet.

“Our goal is to also establish a mobile clinic, with collaborations with healthcare professionals, to aid the efficient administration of vaccines and basic healthcare to the children, the school and the community at large.

“We need your support to achieve our goal of providing FREE school meals one day a week to 700 school children (all schools in the village). Our Feeding programme resumes again in October 2023.

She asked the potential donors to use the following account details to help in providing the needed assistance. Acc Name: Wendoo School Breakfast; Account No: 1200212065; Bank: Baines Credit MFB, Nigeria.
