He revealed that Garun Malam and Dawakin Tofa local government areas of the state are the beneficiaries of the programme, noting that the organisation has so far expended about  N3.5 million to provide food, and school uniforms for the pupils.

Quoting Mustapha, he said, “We use public school buildings where the pupils receive both basic non-formal and Islamic Education”. “By the time they spend one year, they would have learnt something which will enable us to enrol them in primary school”.
