The Anne Osiobe International Foundation has donated educational materials to pupils of Model Primary School in Abuja.

Mr Ejiro Osiobe, the co-founder, who stated this during the presentation of the materials, called on the Federal Government to implement policies to ensure teaching of quality education in schools, to fast track economic growth of the country.

He said there was need to implement adequate policies that would ensure the teaching of quality education for the development of the sector in the country.

“It is also the first online NGO in Nigeria, known for operating as an Economic Development Organisation, and includes Health and Nutrition Department, Trendsetters Series, Ane Osiobe Altrisum Farm, and Ane Tree,” Osiobe said.

He said the NGO founded in 2015, in honour of Mrs Ann Osiobe, was established by Dr Stephen Osiobe and co-founded by Ejiro Osiobe, to support education in the country.

Also speaking, Mrs Asamau Idris, the Vice President of the foundation, called on the government to give adequate attention to girl-child education and assist vulnerable children to give them a sense of belonging.

She said the girl-child education was very important, adding that this issue would not be addressed without checking the poverty level in the country.

According to her, promoting girl-child education will enable women to take their rightful position in the scheme of things, and reduce poverty.

Mrs Mato Juliana, Assistant Head teacher, Academics of the school, thanked the NGO for their donations and called on other organisations to emulate them.
