A Non-profit organization, Leader Joe 1808 Foundation, says it has launched a campaign to get pupils back to school through a golf competition tagged “Golf Junior Championship: Empowering Young Minds”
Speaking to Daily Trust on the competition, founder of the Leader Joe 1808 Foundation, Joseph Onus said the aim of the tournament is to provide quality Education in Primary and Secondary schools.
He said “The Back to School projects have been carried out in FCT- Abuja, Kaduna and Sokoto with Borno state in the pipeline.
“As part of our structure, the introduction of a Junior Golf Championship program is a carefully thought out decision solely focused on continuously promoting peace and education through sports especially through the Golf Championship Scholarship programs as this will reduce the large number of out of school children and engage their minds for a better future.
