The Community High School in Nigeria has received face masks consignments from 26 of the Nigeria Lagos Business Schools. The donation was their way of giving back to society and curbing the spread of coronavirus as said by the Chairman of the Corporate Social Responsibility of the group, Mr Dimeji Olona.
“We went to the Lagos Business School for Advance Management Programme 26 in 2014. After we finished our programme, one of the things that LBS taught us is to give back to society. From 2015, we decided to contribute our quota to the development of the education and health sector of the country.”
“We also decided that if we want our contribution to be meaningful, we should choose a school. So, we went in search of a school and later settled for this school, Lekki Community High School,” said Mr Dimeji.
While extending gratitude, the Principal, Community Senior High School, Lekki, Mr Olusegun Ajayi, said the group also facilitated the provision of computers for the school and this was an area where the school had been suffering most.
When he was urging the members of the public to support the government’s efforts in the education sector, Mr Ajayi said:
“For us in rural areas, most of the parents of our pupils cannot even afford textbooks and other basic things their children will need in school. But with the help of an organisation like AMP 26 of LBS, the pupils will enjoy coming to school.”
