We are happy for Mr. Norman to bring education to our doors in order for our children to go to school,” Madam Potent speaking told her guests.

v3Dozens of young girls as young as fifteen years old have given birth and have dropped out of school due to the lack of support, while others who have not gone through these unfortunate situations (Pregnancies) called on Madam Moore to help them get back to school

Madam Moore speaking to the women and young girls assured them her support for girls’ education, stressing, “With the arrangement between Mr. Norman and myself we will do our best to rescue you from poverty by making sure that young women and girls receive sound education,” she told the group during her interaction with them.

The Memeh Town lacks basic social services including safe drinking water, toilets and school to have their children to be in school and do away with those things that will drag them down.
