As a result of his penchant for improving the educational learning standard in Nigerian Public Schools, Temitope Okesanya, the 2014/2015 second best graduating student of the University of Lagos embarked on the Whiteboard Project (WBP) with THE KAZIT FOUNDATION.
After discovering that several public schools in Abuja still used chalkboards in their classrooms, Temitope and his team started up a fundraising campaign on social media to purchase and install whiteboards in such schools to facilitate learning.
The WBP team visited LEA Primary School, Gishiri on March 31st, 2017, and donated academic supplies and white boards to the school.
In Temitope Okesanya’s words, “the Whiteboard Project is actually beyond providing free whiteboards to public schools, it also involves the supply of teaching and learning materials to these schools that lack”. The team also plans to carry out renovations of dilapidated classrooms in Nigerian public schools.
If you know any Public School that still makes use of bare walls or antiquated blackboards for educating pupils or need teaching resources, you can send WBP an email at KazitWBP@gmail.com. Going forward, the White Board Project plans to impact as many schools as possible.
They will need all the support they can get, and as such they will organize massive fund raising parties this year for the White Board Project.
