Misilli Foundation Launches Education Initiative with Enrollment of 50 Students, Aims for 500 Annually

In alignment with Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya’s commitment to promoting accessible education, the Misilli Community Development Foundation has taken a significant step by enrolling 50 out-of-school children from Dawaki Quarters in the Gombe Metropolis.

During the official kickoff of the distribution of learning materials to these beneficiaries, Ismaila Uba Misilli, the founder of the Misilli Community Development Foundation, emphasized the initiative’s purpose in giving back to society and supporting the state government’s endeavour to reintegrate out-of-school children into the educational system. Represented by the foundation’s secretary, Abdullahi Adamu Misilli, he also announced the foundation’s plans to provide youth training in skill acquisition for self-reliance.

Malam Yusuf Hamza, speaking about the foundation’s activities, revealed, “Misilli Community Development Foundation was established in 2019 with the sole aim of community services, especially for the poor and the needy.” He highlighted the foundation’s previous community initiatives, including the provision of solar-powered water boreholes, street lighting, electricity transformers, youth and women empowerment programs, as well as the ongoing education intervention.

Malam Yusuf elaborated on the foundation’s educational mission, which includes reducing the number of out-of-school children, ensuring access to education for orphans and underprivileged children, motivating dropouts to return to school, and supporting senior secondary school students by covering the costs of WAEC, NECO, and NBAIS exams. The foundation also plans to provide JAMB forms for less privileged children and scholarships for tertiary education students, among various other community services. Additionally, they are establishing a guidance and counselling centre for parents, youths, and other community members.

Barrister Lawan Uba Misilli, elder brother to Ismaila Uba Misilli, emphasized the Misilli family’s long-standing commitment to community service and urged the parents of the enrolled students to ensure their consistent attendance and commitment to their studies.

In their goodwill messages, prominent community figures, including Alhaji Yaya Hammari, Justice Alkali Saleh (Retired), Builder Mahmud Yusuf, Dr Sani Sabo, Alhaji Bashir Ladan, Alhaji Babangida, and Alhaji Abubakar Adamu (represented by Yusuf Abubakar Muhammad), praised the Misilli Foundation’s timely initiative. They emphasized the importance of collective efforts in complementing government responsibilities, acknowledging that government alone cannot bear the burden.

The invited guests also challenged the Misilli Foundation to implement sustainability measures that would benefit future generations and encouraged the people of Dawaki and the entire state to draw inspiration from Ismaila Uba Misilli’s philanthropic work.

The 50 new students have been enrolled in three primary and secondary schools within the Gombe Metropolis and have received support in the form of writing materials, uniforms, pairs of shoes, socks, and other essentials.
