Pay more attention to rural education, Delta Pikin Initiative tasks Governor Okowa
The Founder of Delta Pikin Initiative, a Non-Government Organization (NGO), Blessing Enyamuke, has enjoined Governor of Delta state, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa to pay more attention to education in the deprived and remote communities in the state as the educational system is dying in the rural areas.
Enyamuke made this known during a chat with popular Niger Delta publication, the GbaramatuVoice, after her organisation, the Delta Pikin Initiative (DPI) recently donated school sandals, notebooks and stationaries to children of Agbon Primary School in Isiokolo, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state.
She lamented that most schools her NGO visited in the remote communities are still limited in terms of the new ways of learning as well as the good infrastructure.
She said: “It is our firm belief that all children deserve a chance to get a quality education, as it is the best way for them to realize their true potential. Our focus is to provide children with the opportunity to learn and develop, so they can grow up to be an integral and healthy part of their communities.
“The educational system, state government needs to pay more attention to children in the rural areas. Going by the poor learning environment in some rural areas of the state, I want to use this medium to call on the State Government to come to the aid of the rural children. Some schools in rural areas in the state lack qualified teachers and conducive learning environment.”
