An Ijesa Development Agenda, aim to salvage the future of the young ones for a more promising tomorrow and to build opportunities, strengthen the people's voice to demand greater accountability of the institutions that are located in their neighborhood as to promoting sustainable development, is currently at play.

The Federal Science and Technical College (FSTC), Ilesa hitherto had less than 100 Students of Ijesa origin out of students population of 1,400 but now has shortlisted and interviewed 291 candidates who passed the entrance examination attended by 630 candidates on Saturday, 15th July 2023 with a view to select a total of 250 Students for admission into the academic session starting in September 2023.

And what is more? The selected 250 students will enjoy scholarship graciously offered by 75 Ijesa heroes made up of 57 veteran philanthropists and 18 new philanthropists who damned the current unsmiling, biting, harsh, and worrisome economic situation globally to joyfully sacrifice for the blossom future of Ijesaland children through their humongous financial commitments to this scholarship scheme.
