Caprecon Development Foundation, a UK-based Non-governmental Organization, NGO, has promised to support out-of-school children back to school in Kano state.
Statistics have shown that there are over 1 million out-of-school children, a staggering figure that had become a source of concern to government and stakeholders.
Speaking to journalists shortly after a visit to Internally Displaced Persons, IPS, camp at Mariri area in Kano on Friday, Dolin Holt, the Chief Executive Director of the NGO said he was in the state to support vulnerable people.
Holt added that his Foundation is willing to send out-of-school children back to school, provide uniforms, school fees, instructional materials among others to Holden of the poor who could not afford.
“The idea like i said is to increase awareness, presence of what we do and how we can help in small ways to shape things up in this beautiful city of Kano in the sense of humanitarian help.
“It could be education for poor children, it could be helping people in IDPs, like refugee camps, like counselling like befriending, and we are presenting some items for their feeding and their well being.
“It could also be in the sense of sending children to school whose parents cannot afford. We’re coming to help with uniforms, School materials, and even pay the fees” he said.
At the IDP camp, Holt donated food stuff, detergents, drugs and other items, saying “it is for the wellbeing of the IDPs.”
Holt earlier donated same at the Kurmawa Correctional Centre for the inmates.
