    Dear madam, I want to find out if there are organisations that makes donation to enhance education of children in the boko haram war affected areas. Like myself iwas sponsoring a nursery and primary school with a population of 500 pupils in Askira the head quarter of askirauba local government in southern borno state. Located close to sambisa forest before the insurgency destroyed everything. And we fled the area. Now there’s peace and pupils reported back to school but facing numerous financial problems. I am now undergoing my Postgraduate studies in one of the Nigerian universities. Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Bauchi.
