The AEP Board had worked with Bishop John to create an itinerary to ensure his attendance; however, an unfortunate event in Nigeria left the bishop without his visa. Although calls and actions from Senator Chris Murphy’s office were expediently made, there was no success in obtaining a visa prior to the planned dinner.
A dinner will be held at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 239 Graham Road, South Windsor CT. The purpose of the dinner is to raise awareness of the needs in northern Nigeria for quality education. In addition, detailed updates from the summer trip regarding teacher training and enrollment will be provided.
The speaker, Dr. Lois Tioluwa Olokunde, a Nigerian medical doctor, will tell her own story of how a quality education equipped her for medical school both in Nigeria and here in the US.
While there will be no charge for the dinner, freewill offerings will be gladly accepted. Our goal is to secure funds through pledges for the next three years as we plan the largest building, an administrative-media center- science/computer lab structure.
