Hajiya Maryam

On the 17/10/2021, Hajiya Maryam, brought Islamic scholars to educate and re-emphasize more on marriage in the 21st century, it importance and what Prophet (SAW) said about marriage.

The occasion had about 200 women in her compound at Marhaba Junctions in Jos, Plateau State, where she held the occasion.

Hajia Mariam, while giving a brief explanation on what her foundation is all about said, “her foundation cut across everything and everyone, be they orphans, widows, men and women and handicaps, as long as, they are vulnerable.

She further explained that, she empowers women in doing different businesses and that she also coordinate empowerment programs, and help orphans to be enrolled in school.

She also said she has helped over 150 orphans in school. According to her, “I prioritize education and to achieve that, catch them young”.

From records, 95 of the children she help are in primary school,86 are in secondary School, while 8 of them are undergoing diploma and degree program, while she has also enrolled about 50 new set in nursery School.

She express her bitterness on the fact that, Plateau State Government has never helped her since she started her foundation. She used REALITY as a platform to call on the State Government to help her to improve her live changing programmes, by helping to foot the school fees of some of these less privileged children and to also come to the aids of unemployed women and youths.

She however, further express her gratitude to God and to those helping to see the foundation move to a better height.
