Prior to school resumption, a lot of parents are always engulfed with sourcing money to prepare their children for another academy session.
From readying new term fees to buying books, bags and other items, students are keyed up to keep all academic activities in line with the approved academic calendar.
But for parents across Ikorodu LG, Ikorodu North & Ijede LCDA in the waterbed region, it was a relief as minds were positioned with ease by an unexpected philanthropist.
Lukman Akinsanya, founder of Pepc foundation brought joy to back-to-school activities, putting smiles and readiness on the faces of kids.
Over 1,700 school items i.e Bags, Books, pencils and erasers were distributed to returning students, a move that has received praise and prayers from parents and community stakeholders.
According to the Pepc foundation convener, the support course has been consistent as part of its empowerment program which also includes; Sports, Stop the Hunger, culminating with the back-to-school program.
“Before coming to distribute packages to Ikorodu LG, Ikorodu North & Ijede LCDA, We have gone to carry out the same assistance at Lekki LCDA and Ibeju Lekki LG, wrapping it up, we’ll subsequently touch down at Alimosho & Kosofe respectively”.
“For areas, we couldn’t go to, we’ve also set up online platforms to further engage and reach out to children so they can benefit from this support scheme”.
Akinsanya acknowledged, “Though the foundation was established in 2019, the idea is to spread our wings and reach out in the best possible way we can to give back to our communities”.
