EBONYIDA FOUNDATION SCHOOL SUPPLY EVENT, 2023
The EbonyIda Foundation is dedicated to providing essential school supplies to economically disadvantaged primary school students in Edo State through its School Supplies Program. The Foundation recognizes the fundamental role of basic education in the growth and development of young learners, as well as their interaction with society. In commemoration of the 2023/2024 academic year, the Foundation distributed uniforms, shoes, and notebooks to 150 underprivileged students to ensure that every child has access to the resources necessary to achieve their full potential.
The planning and execution of the school supplies event for the 2023/2024 academic session lasted from September to the end of October 2023, with preliminary preparations and approval obtained from the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB). During this period, we visited the schools and selected the beneficiaries, ensuring that the less privileged pupils received the items. We also reached out to the parents and guardians of the selected pupils to rate their poverty scores to ensure that the items were distributed fairly.
Our approach was thorough and meticulous, and we were able to achieve our goal of providing school supplies to the most vulnerable students. We remain committed to making a positive impact in the education sector and will continue to work tirelessly towards achieving this objective.
The Foundation, in its commitment to enhancing the quality of education in the region, recently provided 150 essential school supplies to three schools that were carefully selected from three local government areas in Edo State, namely Oredo, Egor, and Ovia North East. The provision of these educational resources to the schools played a pivotal role in contributing to the academic development of the students.
The program was a resounding success, with all pupils selected for the program showing up to receive the items made available to them. They were particularly delighted to receive the items and pledged to always attend school to learn and make use of the items to aid their learning activities.
Schools selected for intervention:
- Ogbe-Ibuya Primary School, Oredo LGA
- Olua Primary School in Egor LGA
- Owina Primary School in Ovia-North East LGA.
NUMBER OF BENEFICIARIES
A total of One hundred and fifty (150) pupils, fifty (50) from each of the three selected schools benefitted from the 2023/2024 academic session school supplies program event.
