Ondo State first Lady Visits

OH! MY FUTURE


It is obviously that God created day and night.
The day is light when we work.
The night is darkness when we sleep.
Oh! My future

The creator created a creature that can picture his future.
But it is a pity that children of today toil with their future because of pleasure in the nature of their environment.
Oh! My future

The culture, fashion and nature which people see in the picture has carried many away from their future and dreams.
Oh! My future

Since the mission and vision of youth care project is to help picture the future and also build potential in the life of the creature. Thank U YCP, for my future is back and I am in the daylight not in darkness anymore.
Oh! My future is back.
