Club donates to Makoko community
A not-for-profit organisation, Timeless Impact Club, has donated educational materials to indigent pupils in Makoko community, Lagos.
The gesture, which is part of the group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to the community, was part of activities to make Nigeria’s 61 independence anniversary.
Some of the items donated include a computer set, interactive whiteboard and markers, school bags and books, plastic chairs and tables as well as noodles among others.
The club members also had an interaction session with the pupils, where they urged them to be responsible and remain focused on their lives, encouraging them as leaders of tomorrow.
They later joined the pupils on a canoe ride to ‘Makoko Waterfront’ settlement.
At the interactive session with the pupils, the executives of the club led by its President, Adewale Sanya, said the club was founded in 2014 by a committee of friends and professionals who focused on three aspects, namely; the welfare of its members, community service and business development among members.
Similarly, the chairman, the CSR Committee of the group, Sunday Lawal, in his remarks said the focus of the club is to impact life, especially among indigent children, who live on the water.
According to him, identifying and helping children who are underprivileged as it relates to education, would go a long way in motivating them to remain focused on their studies.
Head of the school, Shemede Noah, expressed gratitude to the club, stressing that the intervention was timely and most needed for students in the community.
