In continuation of its commitment towards empowering and elevating communities in its areas of operation, GE (NYSE: GE), a digital industrial company has collaborated with a non-profit organization, United for Kids Foundation (UKF) to set up a mobile library designed to run a literacy development program for pupils in Lagos State.
The project tagged “Read to me,” has commenced in four primary schools in the Akowonjo area of Alimosho local government and will teach pupils to read correctly and improve their literacy levels.
Chief Communications & Public Affairs Officer, GE Africa, Patricia Obozuwa, who spoke during the launch at Akowonjo Primary School, explained that the concept was borne out of the interactions and experiences of the partnering firms.
This initiative, she added is ingenious because the library is mobile, which implies that it can serve several schools simultaneously.
She further stated that the project is one of many projects that GE has supported as part of its continent-wide Corporate Social Responsibility platform, GE Kujenga.
