Foundation Donates Books, Writing Materials To Lagos School

The Women and Children Global Life Foundation (WCGLF), a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), donated writing materials to the pupils of Itire Primary School, Lagos State on Monday.

WCGL is an organisation registered with the state government with a focus on women and children support to ensure good social development, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The presentations were made during the foundation's flagship programme tagged “School Attendance Awareness Month” also known as the “Back to School Programme”.

The foundation noted that the donation was to examine the preparation of parents, pupils and teachers of the school for the new academic session.

The event drew participants from government agencies, the civil society and the corporate world.

Speaking during the donation, the Director of the NGO, Alhaja Ganiyat Olabisi-Oyeniyi, stated that everyone should be concerned about children's education. 

Olabisi-Oyeniyi noted that the organisation, as a member of the Child Protection Network, is in the business of ensuring quality education of children, to visualise a better future for them.

“Our mission is to find out how mentally prepared are the teachers, pupils and parents for the just begun academic session.

“The session will enable us to have knowledge of areas that need aids or assistance, to enable us to get the best out of the session for improved children's education.

*The writing materials that we are giving to the pupils is from our intuition that those are the basic needs of education at this level.

“It is going to continue with the provision of other things as may be required from our findings through this interface,” she said.

In her remark, the headmistress of the school, Hafseh Bakare-Abiola, said that the staff members were prepared and alert to their responsibilities.

Bakare-Abiola said that a lot of monitoring systems had been put in place by the ministry such that teachers need not be forced to carry out their duties.

She added that the provision of the Eko EduExcel daily-weekly electric tablets given to teachers has kept staff on their toes, noting that the consequence would be meted out to erring teachers.
