The School Hunters Education Development Initiative (SHEDI) in partnership with TY Danjuma Foundation has donated a block of five classrooms, learning materials and furniture to LEA Primary School, Dakwo, Abuja.
Speaking at the handover ceremony in Abuja, the Group Managing Director of SHEDI, Shola Okpodu, said the rationale behind the intervention, which was funded by TY Danjuma Foundation, was to improve the standard of education at the grassroots.
She said the intervention would improve the standard of early child care education in the school, adding that the pupils of the school would graduate into the primary section now better built.
“Basically what we do is assist parents by sending some of their children to school and also build blocks of classrooms for schools at the grassroots. So this is what we did here in LEA Primary School Dakwo,” she said.
She noted that aside building classrooms they also provided the school with learning facilities which included three desktop computers, six tables and chairs, and repaired 100 tables and chairs.
Responding, the headmistress of the school, Mrs. Aisha Ahmed, commended the groups for coming to the rescue of the school.
Meanwhile, the Communications Officer, TY Danjuma Foundation, Adoga Francis, has said that in partnering with SHEDI Foundation, they have been able to reach out to the community by building classrooms and renovating a block of three classrooms and toilets.
