First Bank donates 20,000 digital devices to public schools in Lagos
In a bid to curtail the pandemic, first Bank of Nigeria has donated 20,000 digital devices to Lagos State government. This is made known through the Lagos State governor’s Facebook page.
“Our vision to reform public education got a boost today with the donation of 20,000 digital devices by First Bank Nigeria. The data enabled devices have preinstalled applications that allow users learn from approved curricula.
When we set out our vision to change the face of education in Lagos, we knew from the onset that we could not achieve much progress in improving the quality of learning if we don’t use technology as a strong enabler.
This intervention by First Bank has come at a good time. It feels great when organisations share in our vision and work with us to realise it. I’m glad to say that we have found a real development partner in First Bank.
Nobody foresaw # COVID19 coming along and disrupting our ways of life. These devices will be useful to our pupils in the current circumstances we have found ourselves.”
