Rapping up its brand activity in public primary schools across Lagos State, Tecno Mobile gave scholarship to three outstanding primary pupils.
This is part of the mobile phone maker’s activities that marked 2016 Children’s day celebration across the nation.
Speaking on the brand experiential and corporate social responsibility initiative of Tecno in primary schools which kicked off on May 18, 2016, the brand’s representative, Richard Ugochukwu said the mobile brand remains committed to fostering quality child education in its operating communities as it believes education plays a vital role in community development and nation building.
According to him, “We believe that giving the next generation qualitative education is critical to the prosperity of any nation and for a nation like Nigeria to effectively join the next phase of global industrial race, the Nigerian child must be well educated.
Supporting education is an annual endeavor for Tecno and we will continue to do our very best to provide scholarships for outstanding pupils in public primary schools to further their education,”
He said that Seven Lagos-based primary schools benefited from the two-week long activity in which Tecno gave gift items to pupils of beneficiary schools including donations of stationery to the schools’ libraries.
The principal administrators of the schools were in hand to receive donations made to their school’s libraries. Some of the beneficiary primary schools for Tecno’s second quarter 2016 CSR activity includes: Abesan primary school Ipaja, Community primary school Ipaja, State primary school Ipaja, Estate nursery and primary school Ipaja, amongst others.
Speaking on Tecno’s scholarship award given to pupils today as part of the activities marking the 2016 children’s day, Tecno marketing and PR lead, Attai Oguche said the mobile brand conducted an educational contest in selected schools in which high flying pupils were drawn for the grand finale held today. The three best pupils at the competition will secure the scholarships.
“The best pupils to emerge in Friday’s Children’s day contest will each go home with a cash prize of a hundred thousand naira. We intend that these donations will help them with catering for most of their school financial requirements”, said the Tecno marketing lead.
Tecno Children’s Day 2016 scholarship marks the brand’s third consecutive scholarship scheme for primary school pupils in three years. Tecno is a leading producer of in-demand, high-end mobile phones. Founded in 2006, the company has procured up to 50% share in Africa’s smart phone market.
