The Rotary Club of Lagos has put smiles on the faces of members of the visually-impaired community as it donated music workshop equipment and a freezer to the Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind.
The donation was presented to the society’s Chairman, Olugbolahan Sobande.
The items donated include an electric guitar, a semi-acoustic guitar, a drum set, a brass trumpet, and a chest freezer all in a bid to improve the learning experience of students.
The club also disclosed plans to build an ultra-modern library and block of classrooms for Lafiaji Senior Secondary and Oke-Suna Junior Schools.
The club’s President, Rotarian Babawale Agbeyangi, made this promise in Lagos at the launch of the club’s Robotic Capacity Building Programme in the schools, recently.
Agbeyangi described the planned donation of a library and block of classrooms as one of the club’s efforts at supporting the state government in its efforts to enhance the education sector in the state.
While stressing the importance of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics in today’s world, Agbeyangi encouraged the students to seize the opportunity of the robotic equipment to develop their future careers.
Speaking at the event, the Senior Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Education, Ms Adetola Salau, encouraged the students to take STEAM seriously, to enable them “fix the challenges facing Nigeria today.”
In his response, the school’s principal, Mr Egharevba David, expressed the school’s gratitude to the club for its consistent support to the school.
