Amidst recent stories of crisis surrounding Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh and her rich husband, she is said to have continued to show her love for children as she embarks on providing educational needs such as books, uniforms and school fees.
Thousands of children are not in school, said Tonto, hence her decision to help.
Targeting 1,000 indigent Nigerian children, the initiative titled ‘The Tonto Dikeh Back To School Project is run under the actress’ NGO, Tonto Dikeh Foundation.
“This situation will lead to an unpromising future,” she wrote on her page. “For a lot of these children, there exists no hope of getting education due to inherent poverty and indeed lack of education by most of their parents who, based on their own background, would have developed no value for education.”
Campaigning for support so that such vulnerable children are better educated, she wrote: “The Tonto Dikeh Foundation #backtoschoolproject is committed to re-write their stories and give these children a fighting chance at life by empowering them with the most important weapon – Education.”
