NEWS DIGEST – Chairman of Tutu Group and lifestyle entrepreneur, Mr Desmond James, popularly known as Tutu of Abuja, has launched a back to school programme for children in internally displaced persons camps in Abuja.
Tutu of Abuja who was the co-host of the most talked about Dinner Class Party recently held in Abuja launched the first phase of the scheme on Thursday with 5 beneficiaries in an IDP camp near Games Village in the Apo area of Nigeria’s federal capital city.
The beneficiaries are all children from the IDP camp who are going to be under tutelage of the Evergreen Initiative, a non-profit humanitarian organisation that has supported and sponsored a lot of IDPs to school.
Speaking at the event, Mr Desmond said following the support and love that was shown to his brand and the CEOs network Africa at the Dinner Class Party, he found it worthy to give back to the society by supporting the young children back to school.
“We must all contribute towards making lives better for our neighbours most especially during these difficult times, people are finding it hard to survive and this has continued to breed insecurity in our world today.
“We actually called for support during our dinner class party and a lot of people came out for us and my partners. It is only right that we also use this opportunity to support people in this camp.
Also speaking during the event, the Executive Secretary of Evergreen Initiative, Mr Abass Oroh thanked the lifestyle entrepreneur for partnering with the NGO in carrying out the project as he said that it will go a long way in giving hope to the young children.
The News Digest observed that the beneficiaries and their parents were elated and full of appreciation to Mr Desmond for coming through for them.
