For the past 3 years, the Aurora International Foundation has been quietly impacting the lives of needy kids in public schools in various states in Nigeria.

Thanks to the recently concluded Kits For Kids Africa (IV) initiative held in Kwara State, the spotlight has been turned on Nigeria as a hub of development for Education and Tourism.

Beauty Queens from India, Botswana, South Africa visited Nigeria and were fully involved in the propagation of Education & Tourism in Nigeria as they travelled to various communities with the Kits For Kids Africa team & a few Nigerian celebrities, generously making donations of Brand New School bags, Sandals, Socks, Stationery, Exercise Books and many more to thousands of needy kids in public schools all the while enlightening them on the benefits of education and encouraging them to strive for greater heights in the future.

Equally notable, was the amazing photo shoot that was held at the highest waterfall in West Africa: Owu Falls. The scenery was indeed a beauty to behold – an untapped tourist hub…a diamond in the rough.

Speaking on the success of her foundation’s outing, ex-Miss Tourism Nigeria, Tomi Salami expressed her gratitude to His Excellency, Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Microsoft, Zuma Energy, Bubbles and every single supporter who contributed in one way or the other to the success of Kits For Kids Africa; stating that supporting initiatives like this is a proper way to invest in the future.

She said,

“Words cannot express how grateful I am to God, my ever supportive family, the Kwara State Government, all our sponsors/partners/supporters and every member of #TeamKitsForKids. It was truly an amazing experience – hectic and time bound but very rewarding. The children in the schools we visited were ecstatic! They were truly inspired to look beyond their circumstances & to hold on to bigger dreams. I hope we are able to receive more support and thus cover more grounds on our next outing. One of the highlights of our stay in Kwara State was our visit to Owu Falls. The feel of the ice-cold showers from the falls on our skin was mind-blowing. Legend says the water falls faster & more heavily when you call its name…We hope for investor interests & massive infrastructural development so that spot can be turned into a goldmine for tourism.”

It was indeed an admirable effort and this speaks of the promise of even more to come all over the country & Africa as Aurora Charity Foundation continues striving to bring about positive Change.

    So, (the “”needy””) children were presented with Denrele Edun as a role model?
