We currently have 34 scholarship recipients at 4 schools - Brightland Academy in southeast Nigeria, Foundations Academy in northern Nigeria, Anglican Girls Grammer School in the capital of Abuja, and Fruitful Vines in southwest Nigeria. The girls are all back in school learning in person after COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. They are doing well and enjoying being back with their classmates and teachers.
When the pandemic hit Nigeria last year, we donated tablets loaded with e-books and educational software to help our scholarship recipients and their classmates continue learning. Since that time, the tablets have been integrated into the academic programs at our partner schools. Students continue to read and learn at a higher level than before the pandemic. We donated 220 tablets in 2020, and this past March, we donated another 110 tablets to worthy students at our partner schools.
