THE chairman of Etefe-Agbarha-Otor community, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, Comrade Adayusu Onokurhefe, has applauded the management of DanDani Farms Nigeria Ltd for donating school uniforms, sandals and renovating a 3-classroom block of Anaka Primary School, Etefe.
Management of DanDani Farms, as part of its social responsibilities has renovated 3- classroom block, donated school uniforms, School sandals, notebooks, toiletries, and Noodles worth thousands of naira to Anaka Primary School, Etefe-Agbarha-Otor to mark the closure of the academic year.
In her speech, the Managing Director, DanDani Farms, Mrs. Chinemerem Egwono Omonigho said, “When we came, Etefe community received and welcomed us and our operations have been successful and we deemed it fit to contribute our quota to the development of the community.
“We noticed that the primary school in the community was in lack of portable water, toilet, and a block of three classroom was in bad shape. The pupils of Primary school, most of them could not afford uniforms and sandals, and we cannot fold our hands, hence the renovation, sinking of borehole and donation of uniforms, sandals, toiletries and noodle to encourage some of the parents who are not too buoyant to provide for their children.
According to her, “We have renovated three classrooms block, built toilet and provide borehole for the school and we will continue to do our best to help the community because government alone cannot do it all and it our duty to assist when the need arises.”
“We have passion for every child to be educated, and we have been continuously doing this because we don’t want a situation were a parent will say I cannot send my child to school, so we provide the school uniforms, sandals, books and whatever they needed to make sur that the children are educated. What we are doing here is to support the government because they cannot do it all alone.
“I am particularly appealing to other individuals to come to aid the government because they cannot attend to them al. Government doing its best, the structures are there, so let others assist to make education forward.”
Commending DanDani Farms, Adayusu said, “We are grateful for the kind gesture towards our community and we shall monitor and protect the whatever that has been done in our school.
“We are also appealing the Delta State government help bring more teachers and fence of the school. The Head teacher of the school had no office, he stays and use the mango tree as his office when schools are in section.”
