Group partners Lagos council on children’s day celebration
Worried about the absence of fun and fanfare that characterise Children’s Day celebration in many Lagos State schools on May 27 of every year, Sterling Homes is perfecting plans to revive that tradition in a Local Council Development Authority (LCDA) of the state.
The company’s CEO, Kunle Adeyemi, who disclosed this to newsmen, explained that they were taking up the venture as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR), which prioritises education.
“We are taking off this year and we are starting with 27 primary Schools in Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye LCDA of the state. We want to revive this tradition by giving back joy and value to the children,” Adeyemi said.
“It is our plan to celebrate this year’s Children’s Day in grand style, involving all 27 primary schools in the community,” he said, recalling how the day in his time was a day of celebration for children as they looked forward to fun-filled activities.
During a visit to Razaq Ajala, the LCDA chairman, to communicate their intentions Adeyemi disclosed that he wanted to recreate something like that and even better this year.
The chairman, who was also excited about the whole idea, gave it his blessing, thanking the CEO and his team for choosing his community for that unquantifiable gesture.
