The Ane Osiobe International Foundation (AOIF), a Non-Governmental Organisation, based in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has distributed instructional materials worth millions of naira to pupils of the Local Education Authority (LEA) primary school in Lugbe area of the Territory.
According to the project coordinator of the Dr Stephen Audu Osiobe Osiobe, who presented the materials at a brief handover ceremony, emphasized that “knowledge is power and that one needs education for functional knowledge and to succeed in life.
“At Osiobe, we believe that education is a basic human right. No one should ever forgo education because of the cost. The right of every child is to get education as a basic human right.”
Osiobe, who represented the president of the foundation, however, recalled that his late mother established the foundation to assist the less privileged children in education.
Also speaking, the project Director of the foundation, Mr. Asika Miracle, said that the educational materials were given to the school pupils in order to encourage them in their educational pursuit.
He equally used the occasion to advise the pupils to obey their
teachers as well as their parents.
On her part, the Head teacher of the school, Mrs. Rafat Abosede Usman, thanked the management of the foundation for donating the materials to the school.
