The InnerCity Mission School’s Maiden Science Competition took place at the InnerCity School Grounds, Ikeja Center, Lagos, with students from 7 other schools joining the host school.
The youngsters were given two challenges to complete: the first, a General Science quiz in 3 rounds, and the second, an experiment on Practical Science. The InnerCity Mission School emerged winner of the first challenge, beating out first and second runners-up, Ebunoluwa School and Norwood Private School, respectively.
Gristeam School won the Practical Science competition with a water purification experiment, followed by the InnerCity Mission School, with an experiment on the expansion of air.
All participants were specially recognized, the expression on their faces signaling a determination of future scientists.
We say a big “Thank you” to all our Partners for providing a platform for children at the InnerCity Mission. Now, the children see limitless possibilities and can dream of a great future— one that is void of poverty — where they can be whatever they want to be and contribute meaningfully to the society.
There was unrestrained joy in Odoraboyejo Ojowo Community, Ijebu-Igbo, in Ogun State, Nigeria, as 89 children who could not attend school due to lack of financial resources were sent back to school by the InnerCity Mission.
This gesture was extended in commemoration of Nigeria’s Children’s Day as partners advocated for the rights of children in Nigeria and beyond, in this case by meeting the educational needs of indigent children. The children were enrolled in the community school, Saint Matthews Anglican Primary School, and received free Back-to-School kits, containing brand new school uniforms, backpacks, shoes and stationery.
The local government chairman, community leaders, parents and partners of the InnerCity Mission in Ijebu-Igbo were present, along with staff of the local government’s educational parastatal including the Educational Director for Ijebu North and representatives of the School-Based Management Council (SBMC).
We are grateful to the partners of the InnerCity Mission for securing the future of these children through free education.
Mothers are special to us at the InnerCity Mission and we teach the children we work with the value of appreciating their mothers. This is why the InnerCity Mission School organized a special event in celebration of the 2017 Mother’s Day.
“I am relevant!” — These words resounded from the lips of over 200 teenagers, representing the youth of Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 2 as they delivered food items to the InnerCity Mission Food Bank for an Easter Special Teens’ Food Drive.
Speaking on behalf of all teens and youths in the Zone, Pastor Sharon Ajide, a Youth Ministry official reiterated that, “You can always count on the Youth Ministry of Lagos Zone 2 to make a difference in the lives of the indigent.” In appreciation, kids of the InnerCity Mission Home rendered a special ‘Thank You’ song.
Everyone in attendance had the opportunity to tour the InnerCity Mission School facility; though school is not in session, they saw, firsthand, the impact of their partnership. As the event came to a close, the Chairman of the Food Drive event and LMAM rapper, TruSouth, expressed his joy to see the team’s plans become a reality.
The InnerCity Mission commends the efforts of these super-teens and selfless young people, who have thought beyond themselves, about indigent children who often go hungry during the holidays. Thank You, Esteemed Pastor Vale Odu Thomas for being a great inspiration to these young people.

As citizens of the society, children have every right to be heard. They have needs and they have dreams. They have thoughts and they have ideas. Sadly, many indigent children are not given the opportunity to have their voices heard. Through the Children’s Voice, the InnerCity Mission is helping these children exercise their right to participate in pertinent matters that affect their future. Watch highlights of the 2016 Children’s Voice Competition put together by the InnerCity Mission for indigent children from different inner city communities.
In commemoration of Nigeria’s 56th independence, the InnerCity Mission School organized a special event tagged, ‘Celebrating Our Rich Cultural Heritage‘.
