2 years ago, we set out to equip young students with digital skills, even at the Primary School level. Last year, we called for donations from the public and with the monies received, we purchased 4 laptop sets. With the partnership of Okanlawon Oluwaseun and support from Olalekan Abiola, fellows of Teach For Nigeria, we kicked off the project with students of Local Government Primary School 1, located in Ijagba, Sagamu, Ogun State, a low-income community.
Under Okanlawon Oluwaseun’s supervision and leadership, the laptops complemented the theoretical knowledge of computer science acquired by the students in their curriculum. The students learned in real time what they were being taught by their teachers. With extra classes organized during the week, they worked hard to familiarise themselves, learn, implement, and upskill with basic software programs.
Last two weeks, our students successfully completed their training which spanned close to a year. They have been awarded certificates evidencing the basic computer literacy skills acquired.
We at The Oyemaja Foundation, want to take this opportunity to thank all our donors and sponsors for funding this project. Today, you have sparked the hope of a future filled with opportunities for these students, and have armed them with the knowledge and skills to make it happen. We specially thank Okanlawon Oluwaseun who spearheaded this project and saw to the smooth running from start to finish. We once again thank Olalekan David Abiola for bringing on his wealth of experience, time and support to ensure than the program was hitch-free. We also commend the wonderful work Teach For Nigeria is doing by training young leaders to take up impactful projects across the country.
Thank you and God bless you.
For, The Oyemaja Foundation and The Oyemaja Group.
