ITEL Mobile, has donated customized school bags and other learning materials to Ammaritta Academy Nursery and Primary School, Asaba, Delta state.
The event tagged “Love always on” campaign, was part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to its host communities.
The Sales Manager, Eastern Region, Mr Justin Chen, said the idea behind the event was to improve learning among the pupils.”The education sector is poor. So this is something we do annually to improve education among school children as they will lead us in future”, he said.
On how the schools are selected, the Digital Marketing Manager of Itel, Mr Oke Umurhowhwo said “This is a way of giving back to the community. We ask our customers and fans to nominate a school that needs our support through our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages and from there, we select the school with the highest number of votes.
This campaign started in November 2016 and we have gone to Oyo, Lagos, Ogun and Delta states to distribute learning materials to them. Our next stop now is Onitsha. It’s for free, they don’t have to pay anything”, he added.
The Head Teacher of the school, Mr Odega Benson said “It’s a wonderful and awesome experience. We are elated and grateful to Itel and promised that these materials will be well utilized”.
