Maya Angelou, the late American poet and civil rights activist, wrote in one of her many quotes:“I have learnt that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you make them feel”.

It was in the light of this belief that Covenant University students, under the aegis of Project One Million Souls, the humanitarian service arm of the Student Council, on February 18, 2017, paid a visit to an orphanage, the Heritage Homes, in Lagos State.

At the Heritage Homes, Project One Million Souls presented the orphans with gift items such as beverages, snacks, noodles and toiletries. It was a great moment for the less privileged children as they radiated joy and excitement.

In her remarks on the occasion, Tofunmi Laleye, a 400 Level student of Psychology, said that the outreach was a good experience, because she and her colleagues in the Project One Million Souls interacted with the children and learnt some lessons about life.

Also, Chukwuekem Ifeanyi, a 500 level Chemical Engineering student, said: “I love the outreach, because it was an occasion to pray and interact with the children”, while another student, Onyemere Akuma, stated that, “The outreach was an opportunity to see life outside a comfort zone to appreciate God”.
