Holy Hands Foundation, an organisation concerned with the plight of disadvantage groups, children, young persons with special educational needs and more was on Saturday January 2, 2020 at No. 40 Orewa Street Ewuru Ika South Local Government Area inaugurated. As the Foundation donated notebooks and writing pens for over a hundred students.
In his address the founder, Holy Hands Foundation, Barr. Lawrence Ogor said Holy Hands Foundation is a help ministry and voice of hope for the vulnerable, adding that caring for the needy is a cardinal aspect of the Christian faith, maintaining that anyone who do not care for the needy cannot claim to be a Christian.
Barrister Ogor pointed out that Holy Hands Foundation was registered in 2019 in honour and memory of his late mother, Janet Agboewonsi Ogor with mandate of promoting family peace and values in the society, mentoring of young persons and capacity building, Free legal services to the less privileged and the oppressed and attending to people with educational needs.
The founder said Holy Hands Foundation motivates people for their benefits, helping people become what they really want to become. He added that ignoring the need of those around one might be ignoring God Himself. As he recalled the story of Cornelius in the bible who provoked divine remembrance through alms giving and prayers and that of Dorcas in the book of Acts chapter 9 verses 36 to 39 who was raised from dead because of her good work.
Speaking further, he noted that for every right action one takes, every godly decision one makes, every time one goes the way of love and not selfishness, one is setting block on one’s foundation of prosperity.
Presenting a talk on ‘SCHOOL NA SCAM’: NOT TRUE!, The Chairman of the occasion, the Head of Department of Fishery, Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro Dr. Liebig Jegbefume noted that the origin of the slang ‘school na scam’ is from a song by a popular artiste called Zlatan Ibile as he disclosed that the same Zlatan Ibile is a graduate of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic as he wondered why someone who saw the four walls of a tertiary institution would deceive others.
Continuing he stated that the target of the proponents of this slang is the higher institution. According to him, “in addressing this misconception about why not to waste resources in acquiring tertiary education, we must first of all articulate the reason for this kind of education. Tertiary education is a different form of training compared to both primary and secondary education .primary education is designed to string educational elements together in order to enable the pupil to acquire the skill of knowing how to read and write, secondary education on the other hand afford general information in various subjects to ensure proper and productive interaction with society while tertiary education is structured in such a way that one acquires skills for resolving complex and advanced societal problems.”
Furthermore, he said with this in mind the youths need to understand that education makes them better people and useful to the society in general. He added that aside acquiring special skills tertiary education better prepares one for life.
