Kehsam Schools was founded on the 17th of September, 2012 in an uncompleted Building with 52 pupils and 7 Teachers at Osapa London, Eti Osa Local Government. Presently, they are situated at 1b, Adonai Way, off Dele Adeyemi Street, Gbola Salami Estate, Agungi, Lagos. There are presently 401 students, 27 Teaching staff and 6 non teaching staff. The vision of the school is to help the less privileged, orphans, single Parents and to educate every child in the society especially within the environs of the school.

ST KIZITO CLINIC
Located at 55 Jakande Housing Estate, Ilasan off Lekki Epe Expressway, St Kizito Clinic, a Primary Health care centre, started in 1991 as a charitable effort to provide clinical and basic health care services to the poor of the slum community of Ilasan. They have since included a 24 hour maternity home focused on professional and skilled care of women and newborns. Services are highly subsidized and they have well trained and experienced midwives and gynecologists. In early 2019, St Kizito Clinic was a recipient of AWC’s NGN 1.2m Small World Funds. Funds were used to purchase a 10 KVA inverter system to assist with their commitment to 24/7 power supply.
In December 2019, AWC donated Food supplies for St Kizito’s Christmas Party. The joy was spread to over 200 children at the year-end Christmas gathering. A cheque of N 150,000 was also donated along with multiple packs of food, drinks and toiletries. Each child received a gift of love from the AWC women.
IKOTA PRIMARY SCHOOL, AJAH
Book Donation Project for Learning & Growth (Feb 2019) – As part of an initiative to drive Learning and Development among our less privileged children in the community, AWC early in 2019 donated new and used books to over 400 students of the Ikota Primary school in Ajah. The Books cut across all topical fiction and non fiction categories for age groups 4-12 years. The objective was to encourage the art of reading, exploration and adventure. The Books were well received with excitement as once again AWC placed smiles on many faces.
