To bridge the educational gap created by the COVID-19 pandemic, a non-governmental organisation, AIFA Reading Society has donated educational and literary materials to indigent children and youths of Magbon Alade Community, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos.

The donation, which was part of the society’s efforts to keep students and children learning despite the inaccessibility of classrooms, received support from Mr. Kenechukwu Ajogwu, Rasmed Publications, Learn Africa Plc and the Beta Gamma Sigma (Lagos Business School Chapter).

It was also in line with the society’s effort to promote a sustainable framework for the development of education in Nigeria through its project, “AIFA Book Recycle Scheme”.

Through this project, the society was able to impact over 300 students in the community with educational materials, comprising primary and secondary school textbooks, literary texts, exercise books, mathematical sets, among other writing materials.

In his remarks, Ajogwu, who collaborated with the society, explained that the discouraging state of the nation’s educational system and the gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic inspired his desire to empower children with knowledge and materials for learning.

The Baale of Magbon Alade Community, Chief Nureni, lauded the group for the promotion and development of a reading culture amongst children and young adults.

He commended the society for executing the laudable project to support the work of government in the country. Chief Nureni also noted that the donation would go a long way to keep the children engaged and learning while schools remain closed.

Parents of children and young adults, who were present at the venue of the donation, expressed their excitement at the donation, noting that these materials, especially the textbooks were expensive to purchase for their wards. They urged the society to sustain their donations as Nigeria and global educational system has suffered a recess due to the pandemic.
