NAIJ.com gathered that the wife of the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) Mrs Folu Adeboye has enrolled street kids in schools in Osun state.
Mrs Adeboye decided to put a smile on the faces of street kids by ensuring that they get a chance at sound education.
The wife of the RCCG general overseer established a ministry called Habitation of Hope International Ministry (HHIM), in Ilesa, Osun state, to take the children including area boys/girls and other vulnerable people, off the streets.
According to the coordinator of the ministry, Mrs Olusayo Adedigba, the children will be schooled as well as rehabilitated and reintegrated into the society.
According to Adedigba, some of the students have already been enrolled in private primary and secondary schools. She said:
“By the grace of God, within the last 10 months of pre-operation of the Habitation of Hope in Osun, which also serves as kick-off period, God has helped us and we have six pupils in Redeemer’s Primary School, Ilesa; two pupils at Redeemer’s College, Ilesa, one student at the Nursing Department, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife and another one at Living Spring College of Technology, Osogbo.”
Representing Mrs Adeboye at the inauguration of the home in Osun state, the national coordinator of HHIM, Pastor Grace Balogun, said the project was started in Ogun state, with the aim of winning souls for Christ, giving the vulnerable a home, giving them an education or vocational training and reuniting them with their parents eventually.
Balogun urged Nigerians to strive to show love to street kids and other vulnerable people, stating that they could turn around to contribute to the continued development of the country.
She added that the HHIM project has been established across all the states in the south west as well as Niger state, and that it will soon encompass the whole country.

Osun state police commissioner, Mr Fimihan Adeoye, also lent his voice to the cause, asking the residents of the state to support HHIM, as it would help to reduce crime rate. He said:
“The real value of any man is not measured by what he is given but by what he is able to give to others. Daddy GO and Mummy GO have been doing this very well and I thank God for their lives."
