Williams Uchembah is a Nollywood actor who made his name as a child actor before the advent of several established stars today.
He is presently in the news as he takes the bold step to send about 100 children from poor homes to school as a measure to brighten their future. The young man who is only trying his luck in the music industry has this to say;
“My sending 100 kids back to school is not over as my team in Nigeria is working tirelessly to complete the project …Am glad to see that Grace and Precious are back to School after several months of staying at home because of school fees…I decided to put them on Scholarship to the best of my capacity by the Grace of God. #givechallenge@williamsuchembafoundation let’s get more kids back to school and more people off the street.. you can also be part of these project as well.. #givechallenge
I was told that these kids have been out of school since last year because they haven’t paid school fees and it’s sad to hear the amount that has kept the six of them out of school…So I’ve decided to not only pay for their schools fees for the year but put all of them on scholarship… money shouldn’t be the reason why our kids shouldn’t be in school.. I challenge you to get the kids in your neighborhood off the street and back to school..#givechallenge”
