Joelitic Foundation to Distribute 15,000 Books in Akwa Ibom State
A non partisan, None Governmental Organization, NGO, Joelitic/Big Carazon Charity Foundation in collaboration with Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, is set to distribute 15,000 exercise books across public primary schools in Akwa Ibom State.
This, the organization said is to add value to the lives of Akwa Ibom children who are in schools and may not have the necessary financial ability to enhance their studies.
Addressing journalists on the organization’s plans, the President/CEO of the foundation, Engr Joseph Akpan, said his organization is committed to the development of Akwa Ibom State and Nigeria.
He revealed that so far, the NGO has distributed 6,000 copies of exercise books to pupils in public primary schools, adding that the organisation is coming to help rather than create problems in the state.
Engr Akpan noted that Joelitic is made up of people committed to changing lives, and appealed to government, other organizations and individuals to contribute into the organization.
According to the CEO, “Last time we visited schools, we saw pupils without school bags, slippers and uniform. We need to stand up and build our country.
“Joelitic is bent on investing a minimum of N10m (ten million Naira) in the education sector of Akwa Ibom State. We should not nurse an idea that Nigeria will not be good.”
On the selection of beneficiaries of the projects, he said a panel of judges, void of bias has been set up to embark on the selection process.
Engr Akpan listed the objectives of the organization to include: to revive and restructure the elementary schools in Akwa Ibom State and Nigeria, to build a platform that will bring all Akwa Ibomites and Nigerians together, to build a sustained unity of vision, strength, struggles and unity in programmes of actions of the oppressed, and exploited in workplaces, communities and villages.
