The Pupils of Q.I.C Group School, Aya Obio Akpa – Oruk Anam, Akwa Ibom State have been learning under very poor and mentally draining environment for so many years.
Heromac Ekanem, an explorer in the region who drew our attention to the anomaly shared the sad story of a teacher who said she met the school in that condition when she was posted there in 2018. Pupils sit on dusty floor to learn and write examinations. In higher primary classes, pieces of broken blocks decorate the floor of the classroom as desks for the pupils.
The visibly heartbroken Ekanem, after listening to the ordeals of the Pupils begged on Government, Individuals and Organisations to come to their aid.
In response to the clarion call made by Ekanem through his post on March 30, soliciting for help to provide desks to the school, Emmanuel Inyang Foundation visited the school yesterday, Monday 16th May, 2022 to donate 30 Desks, 100 School Bags, 232 Exercise Books and 100 Pens to the Pupils.
A Courtesy Visit was also paid to the Village Head of Aya Obio Akpa; Obong Okon Akpan Umoh who expressed gratitude for the kind gesture and prayed for the delegation.
It is our hope, that by this gesture, the hopes of these future leaders have been rekindled, and their dreams and aspirations reignited.
