To reduce the number of school dropouts, a non-governmental organization, Infinity Foundation has said it will support students in achieving their educational dreams.
Infinity Foundation director, Mrs. Bisi Akintayo, made this known during the Investors Dinner, Book Launch and Award Presentation organized by G Text Homes, held recently in Lagos.
For me, I don’t talk about the government because every individual makes up the government. That sit is not a permanent sit for them and if they seize to have a charitable heart, we can come together to assist ourselves. We started in 2018 and when we looking at those we have helped so far, they are over five thousand. We have gone to different states, met with different kids and we have been able to assist them in one form or the other
There was a time my first child couldn’t go to school and there was a bursary in my church I wanted to collect but my husband told me God will provide that there are millions of children out there who need this bursary than us. And truly God did it. Till date, each time I’m taking my kids to school and I see children, not in school, tears run in my heart. I feel uncomfortable seeing kids hawking. I’m glad we are trying our best.
Speaking on the book launch, Chief Executive Officer, G Text Media and Investment Nig. Ltd., Mr. Stephen Akintayo who also bagged the 2018 Nelson Mandela Leadership Award as Africa Most Outstanding Person on Humanitarian Services and Societal Development Per Excellence, presented by African Youth Parliament (AYP), said his book Maximising your real estate investment is to educate the public on the importance of investing in real estate business and guides on how best to invest.
My book was written to enlighten the public how profitable and valuable real estate business is. From all the books I have written, I love this book because its about real estate. You cant measure your wealth by Car. But when you own a land or build a house then it will appreciate. The biggest assurance is landed property, not Cars. The starting point for landed property is to have information. You need to know how to invest and that why the title is maximization.
When you invest in real estate you will be level-headed. real estate has a way of humbling you because when you start you will know what you are into. With landed property, fifty years after you will be proud you have done something.
Speaker AYP, Rt. Hon. Bamikole Babs said Akintayo exemplary lifestyle makes him motivators and role models to African youths.
What actually informed us about Mr. Stephen Akintayo is his exemplary lifestyle. he has been doing something wonderful that a lot of youths are not taking cognizance of. And like some of his objectives in investing in real estate, I think its something that every youth who is reasonable to know they need invest Babs said.
In appreciation, Akintayo said he is humbled by the Nelson Mandela leadership award by the AYP. it’s proof that people are watching. We are getting to a point where awards are based on merits and that people do their research and see who is doing well. I really appreciate the African youth parliament for the honor and we pray God gives us the grace to keep doing what we are doing better he said.
