COWLSO donates 5000 transistor radios, face masks and cash to Lagos State Ministry of Education for students at home during lock down.
In response to the new normal thrown up by Covid-19 pandemic, the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO) through the Office of First Lady today donated 5,000 transistor radios, 5,000 face masks and cash to Ministry of Education in a bid to ramp up access to learning for our pupils and students especially in the rural areas and riverine communities.
As a pragmatic organisation with the vision to complement efforts of the State Government in critical sectors, COWLSO is delighted to contribute its quota to ensure that about one million children who are at home as a result of closure of schools have access to educational contents on radio. Our objective is that no child should be left behind in access to quality education.
The First Lady, Dr. (Mrs.) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu wishes to seize this opportunity to urge NGOs, corporate organizations, religious bodies, among others to join hands with the government to scale up education to secure the future of our children.
She also appreciated teachers for the time invested in education of our children, and as a way to reciprocate the efforts of government, she charged students to work hard by coming out with better grades.
