The 1 GAME Campaign yesterday visited yet another primary school, this time around in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in continuation of its free distribution of books and pens to children in school.
The lucky school was the LEA Primary School, located in Kari Majiji village in the suburbs of Abuja.
1 GAME Ambassador, Kryss Molokwu presented the books and pens to the Head Teacher of the school Mrs. Etim in the presence of a few staff and pupils of the school.
Molokwu explained that the donation was part of the 1 GAME: 1 Book, 1 Pen Initiative, and was aimed at assisting children learning in low access areas, “as the schools in the suburbs need more support than schools in urban centres,” he said.
The Head teacher of the school, Mrs. Etim was indeed impressed by the kind gesture of the project and prayed well meaning Nigerians to follow suit. She stated that education at an early age is the fastest way to improve the standard of living of any society.
The pupils at the LEA School, Kari Majiji on their part, expressed delight at the prospect of receiving new stationeries to start the new academic session in 2014.
The 1 GAME Campaign last week commenced the free distribution of exercise books and pens to primary school children in Borno, Lagos and Rivers States, as well as the FCT.
The activity which is in line with the objective of the 1 GAME: 1 Book, 1 Pen Initiative focuses mainly on primary schools in remote areas with children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
