Ajayi is facilitating the educational aspirations of over one hundred Nigerian youths through her sponsorship of their university education.
Speaking during a sermon, she said: “By the grace of God, I am a graduate, as is every member of my family. Therefore, it is only fitting that the youths around me receive an education as well, recognizing that the younger generation is our future.
“I am extending fully funded scholarships to deserving individuals from less-privileged backgrounds within my congregation and across different States in Nigeria.
“The scholarships encompass tuition, accommodation, and living expenses.
“This is my contribution to the development of a new generation of leaders.”
Additionally, she acknowledged and awarded 20 students during the service, recognizing their commendable backgrounds and academic achievements.
She also encourages her congregation to support the youth beyond their external appearances, urging them to unlock their full potential in service to God and humanity.
“For the youths, they must realize that there is no limitation to what they can achieve if they trust God and remain focused,” she added.
Johnson Daniel, a recipient, conveyed his appreciation, stating, “I am deeply grateful to the Esther Ajayi Foundation for restoring my lost hope. I never imagined that I would be able to pursue education beyond the secondary level, let alone attend a private university.
“A mother who cares for all the children around her has chosen to provide me and many others with a future and expected end.”
