WHO WE ARE
With the Corona Virus pandemic, we have all been on lock down and away from the rest of our world. There has been restricted movement- closed malls, no movies at the cinemas, no hooking up with friends and some family members, and no physical schooling. Many privileged children, ranging from primary to tertiary level students, have been able to attend online classes. However, the less privileged have not gotten the opportunity to learn online. They have had to stay home and pray for the re-opening of their school. Apart from not having online classes, many of them do not possess textbooks which they could read with. Of course, in these crucial times, money gotten by any poor family will be used to buy the essentials, especially food and not books for education. The KidInNeed society is a foundation existing to provide the less privileged around us with materials that are needed in education such as textbooks, notebooks, stationery, backpacks, e.t.c. because we know this is what will help bring these children out of poverty and make them great.
The mission has begun
Helping Our First Community (Kuchingoro)
After a lot of contemplation, we decided that we accomplish our first mission in the place that needed it the most- an IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camp. We visited the Kuchingoro IDP camp at New Kuchingoro, Games Village FCT Abuja on the 4th of July 2020. The Kuchingoro IDP camp has been in existence since 2014. The community is made up of people who fled from the North-Eastern part of Nigeria due to insurgency and Fulani Herdsmen. Here, we met children of the different ages and classes. We met with one of the heads of the community before we got the permission to give out our books. These books brought a lot of smiles on their faces. While we were still arranging, we could see them whispering to one another the ones they wanted. It was a very lovely experience giving to children just like me.
MISSIONS COMING UP
A call to give to those in need
Our plan is to impact as many people and communities as possible. To do this, we need more resources and members. You can donate your used books, stationery, school bags, money we could use to buy new books too, and your time of service by joining the association. We are majorly teenagers. If you are a parent, you can tell your teen to join; if you are a teen, you should join this group; as an adult, you can equally join. Let us all make sure we contribute in some way. We need to give back to our society and sharing educative material is giving power to the future generations to change the world.
