Oando Foundation and Sumitomo Chemical, a Japanese Chemical Company, have partnered to support Information and Communications Technology education through the establishment of three solar-powered ICT centres in public primary schools across the country.

The foundation, in a statement on Monday, said the collaboration would impact on the lives of over 2,400 beneficiaries, bridge the existing gaps in the implementation of the ICT in public schools and empower pupils in Oando-adopted schools with technology skills through creativity and learning.

It added that the programme would strengthen the capacity of in-school ICT educators to ensure knowledge transfer and successful implementation of the national curriculum on the ICT.

The foundation pledged to continuously support the Nigerian government in achieving Universal Primary Education through its Adopt-A-School initiative aimed at a holistic improvement of public primary schools. Read the full article on Punch here.
