Salvation Ministries has disbursed N50,000 to 1000 less-privileged children across Nigeria to cater for their educational needs.
Recall that Pastor David Ibiyeomie, the general overseer of the church had in November 2019 promised to pay school fees for 1000 less privileged children across the Nation out of his love for humanity.
According to the church, 1000 less privileged pupils across Nigeria have received the sum of N50,000 each to cover their school fees for the current academic year through David Ibiyeomie Foundation.
The church said the scholarship is aimed at increasing access to quality education delivery and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all which is one of the major goals of David Ibiyeomie Foundation.
School children from Abia, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Benue, Cross Rivers, Delta, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, FCT, Imo, Kaduna, Kano, Kogi, Lagos, Ogun, Ondo, Oyo, Plateau, Rivers, Taraba are among the beneficiaries.
“David Ibiyeomie personally invested the sum of 50 million naira into the lives of the children as he believes education is a tool for positive change in any progressive society,” the church said.
