Airtel reiterates commitment to quality primary education

Telecoms operator, Airtel Nigeria, has reiterated commitment to quality primary education across the country under its Adopt-a-School programme, reports ITRealms.

Airtel’s Adopt-a-School programme, ITRealms gathered, offers underprivileged children access to quality education in conducive environment, providing kids with all the materials for learning and study.

The Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Airtel Nigeria, Segun Ogunsanya, gave this assurance at the recent commissioning of the newly adopted school in Kaduna, Yahaya Hamza Primary school, Zaria, Kaduna, stressing that access to quality primary education is a fundamental right for every child.

“We believe good education is a human right. It is a ticket to prosperity. It creates a level field for everyone to succeed.

“In recognition of the role education plays in the development of a community, Airtel Nigeria has decided, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility vision, to adopt Yahaya Hamza Primary School in Zaria,” said Ogunsanya.

Yahaya Hamza primary school joins the five other Airtel adopted primary schools spread across Nigeria, namely Oremeji Primary School II, Ajegunle, Lagos; St. John’s Primary School, Oke-Agbo, Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun; Community Primary School, Amumara, Imo; Iyeru Okin Primary School, Ilara-Mokin, Kwara and Presbyterian Primary School, Ediba, Cross River State.

Before now, ITRealms gathered that Airtel has brought notable transformation to these schools by providing ultra-modern blocks of classrooms, borehole for portable water, classroom furniture and also donating items such as uniforms, bags and educational materials like books, textbooks and pens on a yearly basis.

As said by Ogunsanya, Airtel’s school adoption is a long term partnership to nurture and empower underprivileged kids. “It is a complete package. Not a one- year wonder but a continuing partnership,” he said.
