Rotary Club equips 400 students with study aids

Rotary Club of Laderin Hilltop, Abeokuta has partnered with Rotary Club of Milton, Ontario, Canada to equip over 400 students at St John Anglican Primary School, Kuto and Agunbiade Victory High School in Ogun State with science textbooks and exercise books.

The primary school students got exercise books, mathematics and science textbooks while the secondary school students were given physics, chemistry, and biology textbooks and exercise books, according to a statement.

Adejisola Atiba, president of Rotary Club of Milton, Ontario, Canada said the intervention was aimed at collaborating with the government and investing in the future of the youths.

“We are investing in the future of young minds, equipping them with the tools and knowledge to thrive in a rapidly changing world,” she said.

She said the lasting impact the club wants to achieve through this initiative is multifaceted.

“We aim to inspire a love for learning, encourage critical thinking, and foster innovation among students.

“By promoting education, we are not only enriching individual lives but also building a foundation for a more prosperous and sustainable future for the community at large,” she added.

Michael Agbaje, president of the Rotary Club of Laderin Hilltop, Abeokuta said the distribution was part of the Rotary Club’s global reforms of investing in efforts that would impact humanity for good.

“We all know the importance of education and the capacity to liberate people from ignorance and poverty,” he said.

“So, no investment in this sector is too much and because there is a whole lot to be done, it won’t be out of place to also use this medium to call on individuals and organisations that have been endowed, to support the government in the development of the education sector,” he added.

Folake Onabajo, headmistress of St John Anglican Primary School II, Kuto, Abeokuta, commended the Rotary Clubs for their commitment to supporting the school.
