As part of our efforts to improve the quality of education in Nigeria, our inaugural project was the Aspire Nerd Championships; an inter-school quiz competition for senior secondary schools. 32 schools competed in 4 district championships and the best schools from each district made it into the finals. Of the 8 schools that participated in the finals, the top 3 schools got cash prizes of N300, 000, N200, 000 and N100, 000 for first, second and third place winners respectively.

In December 2017, RavenBrooks International carried out a free food project targeted at Orphans, the goal was to place 10, 000 smiles on the faces of Orphaned Children by providing them with 10, 000 free meals and giving them a taste of a privileged Christmas. The Free meal week project ran from the 14th of December to the 20th of December 2017, It included a day at the cinemas and a Christmas Party for the Children.

Orphan smiles

There are an estimated 143 million orphans in Africa and 210 million orphans worldwide [recent
UNICEF report). Nigeria’s population is approximately 200 million persons and this gives a rough idea about the magnitude of the population of orphans worldwide. Every day 5, 760
more children become orphaned worldwide and 2, 102, 400 are orphaned yearly in Africa due to high
rates of maternal mortality. The living conditions of these orphans leave a lot to be desired.
One of our initiatives in humanitarian aids is the 10,000 smiles program targeted to reach orphans. Beyond the provision of free meals, this program is designed for social Integration. What we hope to achieve Is to expose these children to what other “privileged” children do for Christmas, thereby giving them a sense of belonging. We have laid down systems and structures to make achieve and sustain the
‘This welfare program for orphans which involves free feeding and take-out, during festive periods as well as welfare packages for their homes.
