Street Child Nigeria Partners AUN, Renovates Schools in Mubi, Michika
On September 27, the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) in partnership with Street Child Nigeria commissioned and handed over some renovated schools in Mubi, Michika Local Government Areas of Adamawa State.
The project funded by UNICEF and facilitated by AUN also provided reading materials like chairs and tables to make sure children are comfortable in class.
AUN has been a massive contributor to various community-oriented projects, one primary reason why Street Child Nigeria contracted the institution to implement and facilitate the school renovations.
The Education Officer, Right to Learn Project, Ms. Sarah Passa, said, “We have enrolled 1,000 out-of-school children and dropouts in Mubi and Michika and renovated some classrooms in six locations across the two local governments.” She explained that the idea was to provide the children an entry into mainstream formal education.
Head of Administration, Mubi South LGA Mr. Isaac H. Sanda, representing the Education Secretary, hailed AUN for facilitating the project. “These classes have been there for long, and children learn on the floor; even the teachers had nothing to sit on. Today we are happy because we now have good chairs and desks. We thank AUN and the donors.”
The Community Engagement Advisor of AUN, Mrs. Turai Kadir, also encouraged the schools’ principal officers in various wards to be good custodians of the facilities given to them.
The renovated schools include Zaibadori Primary School, Mugabe Primary School, Sebore Primary School, and Wuro Patuji Primary School.
