It is easy to forget the plight of underprivileged persons, especially children.
But it is not so for the Dreams from the Slum Initiative (also known as Reachout22).
Dreams from the Slum was founded by 25 year-old Omoyele Isaac to bring development to less privileged children living in remote and desolate communities within the country.
In this interview with YNaija, Omoyele talks about the Initiative and how they are working towards provding basic health and educational amenities for children.
Knowing fully well that the importance of education of every child cannot be over emphasized, hence Dreams from the slum was born out of the passion towards making the Dreams of vulnerable children a reality and one of such ways is through making access to basic quality education for them by giving scholarship opportunities, provision of their basic school supplies and remedial classes.
