    Education Day: MCYD Delivers Books to School

    In commemoration of the International Day of Education, the Maigida Centre for Youth Development (MCYD) has donated books to Sabon Gari Primary School, Jalingo, Taraba State, northeast Nigeria.

    The Programme Manager, Amino Usman, noted at the presentation of the books that the idea was to help boost the standard of education in the state.

    Usman said that the organisation was committed to rendering social services in health and education, and was currently carrying out health programmes in many Nigerian states.

    A report in 2019 revealed that there were over 233,000 children of school age not in school in Taraba State alone, and most of them were girls.

    ‘The donation of books especially teacher guides is out of our social services to the education to boost the standard of learning in Taraba State’, he said.

    ‘This has become necessary because it is part of our social responsibilities and to also commemorate the world’s International Day of Education.

    ‘We have been doing programmes of this kind to schools in Taraba and other states of Nigeria and our aim is to boost the performance of young Nigerians and improve the health of the people’.

    The school’s headmaster, Isa Amed, who was represented by Comfort Yuwa, thanked the NGO for its philanthropic spirit to power the academic future of young Nigerians.
