The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI) has offered free primary education to 400 vulnerable children from conflict-ridden communities in Adamawa State.

The foundation also built a multi-million Naira school and health care facilities to offer free education and healthcare delivery to vulnerable children and communities affected by conflicts in the state.

Makonto noted that the site where the school and health center was built in Demsa Local Government Area (LGA) “is the area most affected by farmers-herdsmen conflict, which destroyed more than 10,000 lives and properties worth millions of Naira. The Chairperson of the Association of Widows, Adamawa Chapter, Mrs. Hilda Makonto, disclosed this at an interactive session with journalists in Yola, the Adamawa capital on Saturday.

Makonto said she saw the inauguration of the facilities penultimate Thursday, adding that the facilities would be beneficial to children of impoverished parents who were either affected by Boko Haram insurgency or farmers-herdsmen conflict.

“Many of us lost our husbands to the insurgency, and farmers-herdsmen conflict, and some children lost both parents living with no one to care for them. But we thank God for sending the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation to care for them.”

“This kind gesture is divinely oriented because God had heard their cries for help such as this for indigent children to go to a world-class school like this one to bridge the gap between children of the poor and wealthy in the country,” she said.

She said the widows “are concerned because their children are significant benefactors. We thank Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Found of COFI, for allowing children of impoverished and vulnerable groups to have a good education and free medical care at no cost.

In a telephone conversation with THISDAY, Head of Education Programme, Innercity Mission School, Vanessa Nosegbe said the school had already enrolled 120 pupils for the 2019/20 academic session.

Nosegbe added that all 120 children enrolled for its free schooling program in line with the mandate of the foundation are children who are from poor homes and vulnerable groups.

She said: “ We have our process of identification of the children we are looking at if you look at the community they are impoverished. All the pupils here are indigent children.

“Through the leadership of their communities, we can sort out the most vulnerable because of the space we have, which can take only 400 children. The education of these children is at no cost to their parents and while in school they are feed at least a meal a day.”

Commending COFI’s intervention, the Deputy Speaker, Adamawa State House of Assembly, Mr. Pwamwakeno Mackondo, said the establishment of the school and health care center “is a blessing to the state.”

He said the facilities were of world-class standards while promising to seek the intervention of the state government “to construct a good road for easy access to the facility, especially for the convenience of the sick who will need free medical care at the health care facility.”
