RAK Development Foundation has recently donated five electric microwave to Education District V of the Lagos State Ministry of Education, in response to a letter of support for their merit awards scheduled for 27th January 2021.
The donated items were received by a staff of the Ministry, Mrs. Bunmi Gusanu in Badagry.
According to the Pioneer of RAK Foundation, Mr. Mobolaji Ogunlende, “It was an important gesture to us because we recognize the role of teachers in nation building and we know, there is a great tendency for teachers to get overlooked in the grand scheme of things.”
“We are fully guided by the fact that, the rewards of teachers would not just be in heaven but we choose to play our role to reward them here on earth.”
On behalf of Education District V, Gusanu expressed gratitude to RAK Foundation, adding that the foundation is the first to respond to their letter for support.
“This is well appreciated, we wrote letters to many organisations, government agencies and individual philanthropist, but this is the first we are receiving and it beats our imagination.
“This is well appreciated and the response was very timely, we hope others we have written to will emulate this act so we can encourage the recipients who are the bedrock of education in the state,” she said.
Reports stated that Gusanu who promised that the donated items will be adequately delivered to the district, put a call to the education district and RAK correspondent spoke with a representative of the Ministry.
