“With the help of the government, we are building an Islamic School for her” – Dr. Sahada Alolo

With the help of the government, we are building an Islamic School for her. And we the young ones are also contributing to construct a residence for the children. She does not want to move out of this area but we don’t have space for construction work here too. The school is not formalized. They don’t pay any fees and she doesn’t do any work. It’s we her children that give her money and she even uses that to feed the orphans.

The Arabs came and constructed six unit classrooms with a mosque. It was also agreed with H.E Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia that they are going to construct a three-story building. Most of our children have grown to become Arabic teachers and have formal education too. Most of whom we don’t even know their parents. Our girls grow up to become responsible and morally upright in society.
