The InnerCity Mission Children’s Voice 2016

 

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.

Presidents and Prime Ministers from 193 member states met at the just concluded 71st UN General Assembly to discuss the state of indigent and vulnerable children among other pertinent issues. Your InnerCity Mission was there with our UN Consultative Status – represented by the Esteemed Pastor Omoh Alabi.

The theme for this year’s General Assembly, ‘The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): A Universal Push To Transform Our World’, formed the basis of several high level deliberations which the InnerCity Mission was actively involved in, lending a voice particularly to issues that affect indigent children and poor families.

Thanks to our dear Partners, the  InnerCity Mission is at the forefront of achieving the top 6 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs);

  • No Poverty
  • Zero Hunger
  • Good Health & Well-being
  • Quality Education
  • Gender Equality
  • Clean Water and Sanitation.

This is seen in some of our programs and initiatives such as; #EndChildPovertyNow campaign, Back To School Campaign, Feeding programs and more.

Your InnerCity Mission during the UN General assembly, seized the opportunity to distribute free copies of the Messenger Angel, Rhapsody of Realities in our commitment to the spread of the message of the Believers’ LoveWorld Nation into every man’s world.

We are most grateful to our dear Man of God, Pastor Chris, for giving the Innercity Mission the  opportunity to be at the  United Nations 71st General Assembly and  participate in decision making and policies that would provide sustainable solutions to better the lives of the indigent.

CE Abule Egba, Lagos Zone 1 organized an exceptional 3-in-1 (Musical Concert, Charity Fair and Food Drive) event to display their love and passion for the work of the InnerCity Mission and to ensure indigent children enjoy the benefits of life.

The Partners of the InnerCity Mission participated fully in every aspect of the event. Items available for purchase at the Charity Fair were cars, electronics, clothes, shoes, yummy meals, livestock, hair dressing and much more with 100% of the proceeds going to support the work of the InnerCity Mission.

Next in the program of event was the mega Musical Concert, where we had great music ministers like Buchi, PeeYuu, Joe Praize, Sam Jamz and many others, perform in style which kept the feet and bodies of partners moving.

As the event came to an end,  partners (children and adults) of the InnerCity Mission wrapped it up by donating food items to stock up the InnerCity Mission Food Bank. This was to ensure that the indigent children we cater for do not go to bed hungry.

Our profound gratitude goes to Pastor Gbenga Olusanya and partners of CE Abule Egba, Lagos Zone 1 for giving the lives of indigent children a meaning. We love you dearly.

Kobis and the InnerCity Mission have joined forces to kick against child hunger as the acclaimed restaurant connects 10,000 indigent children to healthy fresh food for the next 90 days!

Hunger is the world’s most solvable problem, yet according to UNICEF, some 300 million children go to bed hungry and malnourished every day. Far too many children see empty plates day in and day out. Responding to this challenge, Kobis is devoting a fraction of every meal purchased at its various outlets to sponsor a meal for an indigent child. Besides eating at Kobis, you can also sponsor a full day’s meal for a child for as low as N1000 ($3) or purchase a Kobis souvenir, the proceeds of which go to sponsor meals for indigent children.

“When you eat at Kobis, a hungry child eats,” a Kobis representative, Pastor Roland Dabor, expressed at the launch and press briefing of the ‘Feed a Hungry Child’ initiative on Tuesday, September 20, in Lagos, Nigeria.

At the InnerCity Mission for Children, we believe that when GEMs like you partner with us, we can meet the urgent physical needs of indigent children.

Pupils, staff and parents of the InnerCity Mission School came together at Christ Embassy LCC3 to celebrate God’s goodness, mercy and unfailing love enjoyed throughout the just concluded school session.

With hearts full of praise, the pupils, led by the esteemed Pastor Omoh Alabi, came out in beautiful attires, sponsored by CE Benin Zone 3 partners.

Numerous testimonies of God’s blessings were recounted. Families thanked God for academic excellence and His supply in the free education and meals, field trips and learning materials, and more, all provided for free by our partners. There were also testimonies of divine protection; one of the pupils, who was knocked down by a motorcycle but was delivered unscathed.

Climaxing the occasion was the release of God’s blessings upon the children through the man of God, Rev. (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome. Indeed, the lives of the children would never remain the same again.

We would like to express our deep gratitude to our dear man of God, Pastor Chris, for birthing the vision of the InnerCity Mission through which the lives of many indigent children have been given a meaning.

Thank you to all our GEMs whose unwavering support gave the just concluded session a happy ending. We look forward to an even more glorious new school session.

It was a graduation day with a difference on the 21st of July for 52 Pupils of the InnerCity Mission School … New Champions were birthed, set to rule their world forever! 

 The Graduation/Prize Giving Day held with pomp and pageantry amidst a galore of feelings…pride on the part of the teachers, while on the part of the kids, happiness and also a tinge of sadness for friends that they would be separated from.

The event began with the grand procession of all graduating students, after which the outgoing Head Girl of the School gave a “Farewell and Thank You” speech.

Pastor Omoh Alabi ministered blessings to every graduate while our Guest Minister, Pastor Osagie Osaghae, admonished the pupils to always remember the solid foundation which they have received. Amidst cheers and applause, prizes were given out in different categories to deserving recipients.

There were amazing testimonies from the graduates – one of which was from Precious Jesuniran, the outgoing Head Boy of the InnerCity Mission School. He thanked God for the invaluable support of our Partners who came to his rescue after he dropped out of school because his parents could no longer afford it.

Parents of the Graduates during the Ceremony expressed their profound gratitude to Pastor Chris and the esteemed partners who made free education available to their children. Finally, our graduates officially signed out on the “Wall of Honour” which featured their beautiful photographs.

Truly, we cannot express our appreciation enough to our partners all around the world whose commitment to ending the scourge of child poverty made the day possible. Your efforts have produced superstars who will shine brightly in the world. Thank YOU!
