"We have a lot of work to do. We saw a lot of children with no uniforms and logistics. They come into the school with torn attires and bare feet. Many of them have lost interest in education simply because they don't have the right learning materials. Meanwhile, they need equal access to better education just like children in privileged communities," he said.
Isaac calls on responsible stakeholders to step in with interventions but added that his organization will keep doing everything in its power to alleviate the plight of students in such conditions.
In his own words,
"As I Grow Ngo will continue to do its best to support the less privileged in our deprived schools to bridge the gap between them and those in the cities."
