As most people already know, Steve Jobs, the founder and prime mover of Apple Computer was adopted as an infant. Whenever asked about his drive for success, his response goes thus, “..There’s some notion that because I was abandoned, I worked very hard so I could do well and make my parents wish they had me back, or some such nonsense, but that’s ridiculous,” he insisted. “Knowing I was adopted may have made me feel more independent, but I have never felt abandoned. I’ve always felt special. My parents made me feel special.” He would strongly disagree whenever anyone referred to Paul and Clara Jobs as his “adoptive” parents or implied that they were not his “real” parents. “They were my parents 1,000%..!!!” Steve Jobs affirms.
Makhtar Diop, World Bank Vice President for Africa noted “Africa’s youth is Africa’s biggest asset and investing in young children is the smartest investment countries and people can make..” Studies show that early childhood educational programs can generate learning gains in the short-run and, in some cases, improve the long-run life chances of poor children. Moreover, the benefits generated by these programs are large enough to justify their costs. At the same time, the fact that poor children are geographically concentrated in neighborhoods that are segregated by social class presents special challenges for education policy, given that poor children have traditionally attended poor neighborhood schools. It is based on this premise, that the Tunde Ekepekurede Foundation (T.E.F) has designed a “ADOPT-A-CHILD-TUITION” program strategically aimed at substantially improving the academic performance of poor children by enrolling them in sound schools.
