Godspower

13-year-old orphan Godspower Nwachuckwu lived with his teenage sister.

In 2009, he became the first recipient of the P2P scholarship fund. Before receiving the scholarship, Godspower attended a state primary school, with over 150 students in each class. The stretched economy of his home life meant he attended school hungry and often malnourished. In spite of these conditions, Godspower’s academic abilities shone through – he came top of his class three years running.

The P2P scholarship fund has now enabled Godspower to attend an excellent boarding school for his secondary education. In October 2009 he started at Caleb Secondary School in Magodo, Lagos. With access to education comes hope; Godspower now aspires to become an accountant and his siblings are proud of his achievements and aspirations.

Latest Update

Godspower recently won an award for the most improved student in Junior Secondary School 1 (JSS1)I. He found his first year challenging, due in part to the poor quality education he had received in his primary school. However, with extra tuition in mathematics and English, his potential is shining through. Having failed mathematics in his first term, we can proudly announce that in his final term he got 71%, which gives him an A-grade.

Next year he wants to win the prize for the best in mathematics! Godspower has been nicknamed ‘the Rugged Brazilian’ by his peers – on account of being the best footballer among them!
