FIFTEEN widows were presented with grinding machines as an empowerment working tools by Virtuous World School, Gbagada, Lagos in commemoration of the school’s Charity Day celebration.

The empowerment programme was powered by the school’s authority in collaboration with parents of the pupils.

The school’s Proprietress, Mrs. Laide Ogunbekun said the event was a way of giving back to the society.

Ogunbekun said the Charity Day celebration, which has been going on since 2013, was initiated by her with the approval of parents as a way of identifying with the less-privileged in the society, recalling that many orphanage homes had benefitted in the programme in the last three years.

The proprietress enjoined parents to remember the displaced children, most of whom might have lost their parents in the Boko Haram insurgency ravaging the North Eastern States in Nigeria, and pray fervently for their rehabilitation and survival.
