Oando Foundation (OF) and Sumitomo Chemical America have donated solar powered ICT Centres to Dele Ajomale Primary School, Ilasamaja in Lagos state.

The President of Sumitomo, Scott Mitchell during the fimrs’ visit to the school, said the gesture is aimed at improving public primary school pupils’ access to quality basic education with the blend of Information Communications Technology (ICT).

He said, “In particular, we recognize the importance of ICT literacy programmes for children from an early age. Our partnership with Oando Foundation has been an exciting journey supporting the public schools of Nigeria.”

The Head, Oando Foundation Adekanla Adegoke said the partnership started in 2016 and has impacted the lives of over 2,400 children through the bridging of gap in the implementation of ICT in public schools and empowering pupils with technology skills.

“At the most basic level, being able to navigate around a computer is an essential skill for today’s Nigerian youth. In the work place, having ICT skills is an imperative; thus students need to be comfortable and able to use technology not just for more effective learning but so they are able to stand alongside their peers globally in the twenty-first century,” he noted.

The firms have established 46 ICT centres across Nigeria which Adegoke said is part of the Foundation’s quest to exposing pupils to 21st century ICT capabilities geared towards arming them with requisite knowledge to compete in an ever dynamic world.
