Etisalat promotes quality education, remodels schools in states

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.
