Coca-Cola donates computers to 30 schools

The Tech Relevant Teacher (TRT) project, sponsored by the Coca-Cola Foundation and implemented by the Bunmi Adedayo Foundation, has donated computers to 30 Nigerian schools.

At the grant award ceremony held on Monday in Lagos, the foundation said it provided 30 schools with computer hardware and software accessories to support their learning, content production and digitisation.

In a statement, the foundation said the TRT project was to help improve the learning capabilities of 200 low and middle-cost schools. The school heads and teachers were also trained in virtual teaching technologies.

It said 30 of the 200 schools were selected and recognised for their stellar performances since the commencement of the project.

Each beneficiary school was presented with a mini-content production suite consisting of a computer, a PC external speaker, a headset and a microphone.

The Programme Director, Bunmi Adedayo Foundation, Mr Femi Martins said, “Through this project, we are providing access to subject mentoring in math and English, and we will also provide access to the latest equipment.

“The teachers will also be profiled and taught how to develop global courses to help students across Africa succeed.”

Ifeyinwa Ejindu, Communications Manager, Coca-Cola Nigeria, reiterated the company’s commitment to community building and education, saying, “By investing in the education of our children, we are investing in the future of our country, and as we navigate the new normal, we believe that technology is crucial to success just as the learning from this project will help bolster the education sector in Nigeria.”
