On 16th September 2021, Grace Arena Charity Initiative, the charity project of the Grace Arena International Prayer Ministries gave out cash sums to many families as financial support in paying the new term’s school fees.
According to Pastor Taiwo Adeyemi, the amiable and charitable General Overseer of the prophetic and inter-denominational ministry (and one whom often makes people wonder how grace could reflect so we’ll on a prophet of God), the project has been running for four years since inception and the vision has been kept going by well-meaning philanthropists whom God has blessed through His spiritual grace and that of His blessed son, Jesus Christ.
According to him, there is still room to do more as the foundation was able to grant scholarships to 11 pupils this term, with prayers that more support will come to do more for more people.
“You see, the truth is that the government has failed us and untold hardship is being foisted on the generality of Nigerians. It is the duty of religious institutions to take the bulls by the horn and be creative in addressing these social and educational challenges.”
Speaking further, he appealed to all Nigerians with kind hearts to support the dreams and aspirations of others that are less fortunate.
” A little is a lot out here. Our Redeemer, Christ Jesus always preached love and even fed the multitude. Showing love and support will go a long way to encourage others in these difficult times.”
The event which was held within the beautiful ambience of the Mountain top auditorium located at Ikenne Street, behind the Owutu Agric Mechanic Village was corporate and anchored by versatile compere Jesusboy and it featured exciting side attractions including Cultural performance by the brilliant and brainy kids of Salem Brainy School as well as solo recitals and choreography.
The scrumptious feast which was prepared by petite but chic celebrity caterer and confectioner, Mary Adesanya of Marelle Confectionery, was so delicious that it was soon devoured in no time.
The highlight of the event was when the cheques where presented to the kids and their parents. The keynote address was given by the proprietor of Salem Brainy School while Mrs. Asiwaju, acting in the capacity of the event chairlady and chairman planning committee, gave the welcome address and vote of thanks.

He charged the guests and appealed to well-meaning Nigerians to support this noble cause as the organization hopes to feed over 3000 kids in the 2021 edition.
” Years past, we had feted less due to funding capacity buy hopefully, this year, we shall feed 3000 kids with all the side attractions including the ice-cream truck and bouncy castle.”
