Corps members have continued to be beacons of hope and joy givers to their community of service across the country.

The young philanthropist also gave the school 500 pieces of customised 40 leaves exercise books.
Ebenezar says he hopes to give the students a sense of belonging
While dedicating the success of the project to his late father Pastor Samson Olufemi Adejengbe, the young man told Legit.ng in a chat that he believes the donation will give the students a sense of belonging.
"The project will aid their education in terms of comfortability and it's will give them more sense of belonging that someone loves them and they need to study hard to be useful to themselves and the society."
Ebenezar wants the Nigerian government to encourage education
Ebenezar who hails from Ila Orangun in Osun state said that it has always been his dream to encourage education in his little way and charged the government at all levels to prioritise it as it remains the best legacy.
He raised an alarm that the country's educational sector is on the brink of collapse and that all hands need to be on deck to encourage it.
Ebenezar appreciated the NYSC for how beneficial the scheme is and how it has impacted him as well as host communities.
He also appreciated his donors and God for the success of the project.
Corps member donates digital library to NYSC
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a corps member had donated a digital library to NYSC.
With the new project, access to NYSC materials will be digitalized and that will help easy access. The man stated that he was able to source funds in getting things like printers, book scanners, a server, among others.
The director-general of the NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, appreciated his gesture as he described the young man as an honest and dedicated corps member.
