Malumfashi is an interior native community in Katsina State. The people are basically known to be peasant farmers. The local community is plagued with high levels of illiteracy; due to its poor access to education, poverty and poor social infrastructure.
In other to access education, it is required of its indigenes to travel long miles away from their interior villages, to find educational institution. It is on this premise; the Dominican Sisters of Sokoto Diocese embarked on the mission to permeate these interior communities to find children eager to receive good education relocate the kids from their interior communities and rehabilitate them in a rented accommodation.
The light givers humanitarian foundation awarded ten (10) Children attending Maryamu Nursery /Primary school and Saints Vincent Ferrer College Malumfashi Katsina. The schools are run and managed by the Sokoto Diocese under the care of Dominican Sisters led by Rev. Sr. Sylvaline Obiaghara.
In addition to the scholarships awarded, the Light givers foundation provided food items and paid for the rented accommodation the children are living in. As our continued support to Light giving initiatives; the Light givers foundation plans to do more; We are determined to build a hostel to accommodate more of the children from these interior communities; to promote literacy in Malumfashi community, award more scholarships to children constrained by poverty and provide food items for the children.
Most Reverend Dr. Matthew H. Kukah the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese showed his appreciation to the Light Givers foundation especially to our Chairman for his selfless act and kindheartedness.
