As part of our ongoing _FREE STUDENTS TRAINING & BOOK DONATION Project_ as approved by the Lagos State Ministry of Education, the two schools we visited today are located at two extreme borders of Ikorodu community. The first school visited was Zumuratul Islamiyyah Senior Grammar School at Igbogbo for the morning training session, and other being Odogunyan Senior Grammar School at Odogunyan for afternoon training session.
Approximately, we had about 1000 population of students reached today which is a double of the two schools from yesterday. Indeed, it was a tough call trying to cordinate such a huge population of energetic and vibrant young people, but with the number of volunteer facilitators who showed up to support us, we were able to split into small groups and achieve greater impact with today’s training programme.
The genuine support and dedication of all our volunteers as well  as the cooperation of the principals of all the four schools visited so far is worthy of mention. Considering the feedbacks and responses of the students and teachers, we can, without any iota of doubt, say that the free students training and book donation project is achieving its primary purpose of empowering these young minds to increase their yearning for excellence.
A big THANK YOU these awesome individuals who served with us today:

About the Book (Success Equation):

We have come to realize that in most students is an instinct for academic and career success, but the inability to get their focus and priorities right has been a major hindrance for them to reach their desired pinnacle of success. Hence, Success Equation is a self-help book that provides a step-by-step guidance to help students identify their individual learning challenges and as well proffer practical solutions on how to transit from poor or average academic performance towards achieving academic excellence.

Aside other regular academic books, Success Equation is written to inspire students not only to crave for success but put them through how they can achieve it with determination and hard-work. The book is an easy read, inspiring, informative and engaging.
