The First Lady of Kwara State, Mrs Toyin Saraki has urged parents in the state to embrace the education of their children as the only assurance for their socio-economic rights and development. In a statement to mark the 2009 edition of the International Women’s Day, Mrs Saraki noted that the education of all Kwara Children without discrimination on the bases of sex was important to the emancipation of not just families but the society at large.

She also pointed out that the mass education and enlightenment of men and women in the state was necessary for the attainment of this year’s theme of “women and men united to end violence against women and girls” insisting that revealing the ills of violence was important to eradicating the problem. She pledged the commitment of Alaafia Kwara, her non governmental organisation to the enrolment, retention and completion of the education of all Kwara children and that every effort would be made to achieve this. She informed that towards furthering this determination, Alaafia Kwara was setting up extra mural educational opportunities in all local government areas which will host resource access unit in the state and these opportunities would provide functional literacy and numeracy sessions which will improve the capacity of both children and women.
