Some primary and secondary schools in four states of the federation have benefitted from Etisalat Nigeria “Adopt-A-School Initiative.”
The “Adopt-A-School” project is one of the platforms Etisalat uses to implement its core Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy built on three pillars: Education, Health and Environment.
Targeted at promoting qualitative education and sustainable development in Nigeria, Etisalat uses the scheme to renovate and remodel schools in key Nigerian communities.
In a statement made available to The AUTHORITY by Mr Anthony Elikene of Etisalat’s Chain Reactions, he listed the renovated and remodelled schools as Girls’ Government College, Dala, Kano State; Edward Blyden Memorial Primary School Okesuna, Lagos State, and Akande Dahunsi Memorial Junior and Senior High Schools, Ikoyi, Lagos State.
Others supported by the company under the broad umbrella of educational sustenance are Igwe-Uwokwu Village School in Oju Local Government Area, Benue State and Nuhu Bamali Primary School, Fadi Sanka in Zaria, Kaduna State.
Elikene said that apart from the renovation of the school buildings, Etisalat also donated Information and Communication Technology (ICT) facilities, laboratory equipment, textbooks and back-to-school kits amongst others to them.
On Etisalat’s passion for investment in the education sector, the Director, Regulatory and Corporate Social Responsibility, Ikenna Ikeme, said that the interventions were aimed at supporting the affected state governments to improve the learning and teaching environment, thereby raising the standard of education in the country.
