Ireoluwa Adegoke, a corps member, has donated over 100 textbooks and an e-library resource centre to Victoria Island Senior Secondary School, Lagos.

Adegoke, who is currently serving with General Electric, presented the items to the management of the school.

Apart from the textbooks and e-resource centre, the corps member also donated board games to the library and organised a seminar for the science teachers in the school.

At the commissioning ceremony, the school principal, expressed her appreciation and said: “There’ll be no effective education without good books. Books lead to positive advancement in teaching and will improve the reading culture of the school students.”

While making a speech, Adegoke said: “RESIL is aimed at supporting the education system by equipping the school with curriculum focused and personal development books and other electronic resources.

“I appreciated God, my parents, colleagues at General Electric, for their kind-hearted donors and the school management for their tremendous support.”

The seminar was organised in partnership with Stem-ED Africa, and Life Realities Foundation.
