“ Hello sir, is this the Charity City Project? I saw your activities on facebook, that you help the poor. My name is Moses Kayode. I am hungry, should I come to your office to get some food to eat? “
That was the distress call I received from one Moses Kayode, some few days. He was invited to our office yesterday to receive some assistance and counseling. He was also introduced to a company in Ikeja that offered him an instant job. To God be the glory! He came to our office hopeless, but he left with a renewed hope for a better future. After our encounter with him, his countenance was lit with excitement that was palpable. By the way Kayode is a graduate of Accounting and Finance. He lost his job early last year and that plunged him into lack and penury.
It is sad to note that many Kayodes roam the street of Nigeria, jobless, hungry, homeless and hopeless. The question is: what are you doing to help such people in your own little way? It is not enough to blame the government for the rising unemployment and poverty in Nigeria. Everybody can do something to stem this ugly tide, by showing some love and care to the teeming unemployed youths around us. What many of them actually need is just money or some handout, but quality counseling and mentorship that will guide them to the part of self-sustenance’
This is a clarion call to us all, to join our hands together to build a better Nigeria for the good of all #charitycityproject
