Airtel donates books to adopted school
Airtel Nigeria has donated over 1,000 books to pupils of one of its adopted schools, as part of its Reading For Leading campaign. The initiative is to encourage reading culture among students in primary schools across the country.
The books were donated to St. John’s Primary School, Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State, on Tuesday, November 15. Commending Airtel for its support to developing the educational sector, Head-teacher, St. John’s Primary School, Mr. Adeniyi Odufoye, urged other corporate organisations to emulate the company.
“I sincerely hope that other corporate organisations will emulate Airtel in supporting education and providing opportunities for primary school pupils to read. Since 2013, the company adopted our school, it has raised the standard,” he said.
In addition to donating books, the company’s employees also bonded with the kids, taking turns to read and share in exciting educational games.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie flagged off the campaign in June 2016. The initiative is in partnership with Longman and Macmillan Publishers.
