 Yari launches education support initiative for poor childre

Sen. AbdulAziz Yari

Former Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar has committed to aiding children's education, particularly those from impoverished backgrounds, through his statewide food distribution committee.

Yari revealed this at his Talata Mafara residence on Thursday while hosting the members of the food distribution Committee from the 147 wards of the 14 local government areas of the state.

According to him, the newly conceived idea will search households to identify children who need education support.

He emphasized the importance of bridging the gap between the literate and illiterate, rich and poor.

He said, "Having noticed the alarming number of Out of out-of-school children in the state, henceforth, the Committee will serve a dual purpose, including food distribution to the neediest households and identifying children who have been hindered by poverty from attending school.

“We will sponsor the identified out-of-school children to facilitate their return to schools and ensure the enrollment of those who have never attended school.”
