Information reaching our desk now says that Queen Uwe Nja 2015/ 16; a celebrity queen in the South Eastern part of Nigeria has unveiled her wonderful plans. Chatting with our journalist, Ethelbert Umeh recently. Among other things, she talked about 2 pet projects that are closer to her heart namely:
The first is the one she tagged ‘get children off the streets’ (GCOTs), while the second is ‘Donate food to Charity’ (D F C).
According to her: ‘I have started the first one in conjunction with a gospel artist in my church, Christ Embassy Owerri. His name is I.O.C Walter 11. My sole objective is to get children of school age off the streets by taking them to inner-city, a free school run by my church, so that they can receive qualitative education for free. Then, those in secondary school can be taken off the streets where they will learn skills, that will enable them to be self-reliant in life. I am currently working on it. More so, I am still looking for sponsorships. In fact, I launched this product on December last year.
The aim of the second project plans is to encourage people to donate food to charity. Due to the current economic situation in Nigeria. The number of people donating to charity has decreased tremendously. So, I need to create the awareness, and encourage people to keep on doing so. I will launch this project very soon. We are currently working on printing shirts, getting our handbills, fliers ready for it’
Congratulations to Uwe Nja 2015/16 for having such a golden heart.
