Abuja Corps member Donates 20 Laptops to Abuja School
A member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Richardson Ojeka, has donated 20 laptops to pupils of the Government Secondary School, Alungu Lungu Village, Gwarinpa, Abuja.
It was reported that the donation was part of his Community Development Service (CDS) toward reducing technological illiteracy.
The donation was made after intensive training for 30 pupils and inauguration of Students Innovation Hub in the school at the weekend. Richardson said the gesture would be extended to the 774 local governments in the country.
Ojeka, who is the founder of the Africado Foundation, said, “It’s obvious that the world is navigating very fast towards information technology, and we must match the world’s strength and be acquainted with ICT and computer-based information, hence the need for the project.”
The National Project Officer, International Labour Organisation (ILO), Segun Tekun, said, “We want to make sure that we deliver the right skill for the right people so that we, as Nigerians and people of Africa at large, can be able to benefit from this transfusion to digital development.”
