The eighth cohort of the Modular Executive MBA programme of Lagos Business School (LBS), also known as MEMBA 8, will fund the education of 10 pupils at Bridge International Academies in Alagbado, Lagos State, for two years.

The gesture represents MEMBA 8’s social investment project – a part of their MBA programme at the prestigious LBS.

Class President and Managing Director of Meristem Trustees Limited, Damilola Hassan, said, “We believe that investing in education is one of the most important things we can do to create a positive impact in our society, and as a team, we have decided to commit to this.”

“Our sponsorship will go a long way in bringing cheer to both the pupils and the parents. The scholarship covers tuition, school uniforms, notebooks, textbooks, and any special education support required by 10 children for a two-year period, enabling these beneficiaries to enrol and/or remain in school.

“This is to support them and their parents or guardians as they pursue their academic goals, assisting them to realise their potential,” she added.

The MD of Bridge Nigeria, Foyinsola Akinjayeju, said the gesture “aligns with our goal of ensuring that every child has access to quality education regardless of their social or economic background.”

“MEMBA 8’s sponsorship will make a huge difference in the lives of these children and their families. Quality education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, and this support will give these children the opportunity to achieve their dreams and make a positive impact on their communities,” she said.

Bridge Nigeria opened its first school in 2015 to provide millions of children with quality education.

Foyinsola added that “Bridge believes that a child’s potential should not be limited by their family’s income, which is why we work with partners to support pupils from struggling families trying to fulfil their academic dreams for their children.”
