It was a celebration of success on Tuesday, July 25th, at the InnerCity Mission School’s (Ikeja Center, Lagos) Valedictory Ceremony. The event was graced with the presence of esteemed partners, including the esteemed Assistant Secretary-General of BLW Inc., Pastor Afolabi Oketunji, award-winning Gospel reggae legend, Buchi, the Country Director of Oriflame Nigeria, Tamila Ksrimova, and more.

It was also a delight to see over 150 alumni of the InnerCity Mission School from as far back as 6 years, some who are now young adults in the university, present at the event. Spoken word performances, a ceremonial handover of leadership positions, a special dance presentation from the graduating pupils, exhortations by alumni all served to add a special touch to the day for everyone present.

Several of the graduating pupils received special awards for their outstanding performance as pupils of the InnerCity Mission. Notable among them was Gyang Marcus, a 13year old boy. At age 8, Gyang could neither read nor write. He could not even spell or write his own name. However, in 2012, through the InnerCity Mission’s back-to-school campaign, Gyang, with many other indigent children, was enrolled into the InnerCity Mission School. At the graduation ceremony, the young boy who could neither read nor write emerged the best pupil in English, Mathematics and other subjects. Not only that, he also received several other awards such as best in sports, the most dedicated School Prefect, and most well-behaved pupil!

As each graduating pupil walked up to receive their first school leaving certificates, the parents present openly expressed their joy, grateful for the milestone completed, an academic journey which some of the kids would not have begun without the effort of InnerCity Mission partners.

The graduates had a special dance presentation to the song ‘Bigger Than Yesterday‘ by Israel Strong, a track specially chosen to symbolize their move to greater heights.

The climax of the event was the release of potent words of blessing into the lives of the graduates as the highly esteemed Pastor Omoh Alabi declared uncommon exploits in their next and higher level of life. This remarkable occasion was made possible by partners, who stand with the InnerCity Mission to ensure no indigent child is left behind.

Prize-Giving Day is a special time to commend and applaud pupils who did exceptionally well during the school session. In closing the 2016/2017 academic session, parents and invited guests were present to cheer such pupils at the InnerCity Mission School’s Prize-giving Day 2017.

The ceremony began with the opening prayer and a speech by the Head of School, Mrs Vanessa Nosegbe, who congratulated all the pupils on a successful school session. Pupils who had distinguished themselves in various areas such as punctuality, and in subjects such as English language and Mathematics, were given special recognition awards. Commendation awards were also given to pupils who had improved greatly or had made outstanding contributions during the school session. Parents and pupils alike excitedly cheered as recipients of awards walked up majestically  to receive their prizes.

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.

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.

This Easter season, help preach the gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
