Nigeria: 12 Public Primary School Teachers Get Computer Appreciation Scholarship


No fewer than 12 public primary school teachers drawn from Bariga and Shomolu communities in Lagos State were empowered last Saturday with three months free computer appreciation scholarship programme by LUCINMA.

Mrs. Ukor Princess Mokolo, founder of LUCINMA Women Development Centre, while delivering a speech at the graduation ceremony tagged: Lucinma Computer Literacy for Educators' (LUCOLITE) said that the programme was designed to equip educators with current information technology tips, tools and critical computer literacy skills to simplify their tasks of inspiring and empowering students.

Mokolo who spoke through the Executive Secretary of the centre, Mrs. Lucy Jonah, added that the initiative to empower the 12 awardees was driven by a deep passion for human development and commitment to positively impact on the lives of teachers, maintaining that the beneficiaries who once saw computer as a mere technology not only operate computers now but apply it for effective delivery of their duties as moulders of future leaders.
