Professor Lawrence O Akin-Adeyemi and Mrs Florence O Akin-Adeyemi, Seattle Washington-based couple well known for their philanthropic activities have donated 1,968 books to Community High School Ayetoro Gbede.
The presentation of the books was done on Saturday 27th March at the school premises during the official opening of the new school library.
The Adeyemis strongly believe in the power of education as a force for social and economic mobility.
The donation of the books will no doubt enhance the reading culture and the limitless opportunities for life advancement for the students.
Speaking at the presentation of the books, Prof Ifeyori Ihimodu commended the generosity and giving spirit of the couple.
The students were elated and expressed their appreciation directly to the couple via Zoom link.
It is our sincere hope that education in Okunland can be restored to its past glory if other well meaning, kind hearted people like the Adeyemis can support education of children in their various communities across Okunland.
To the Adeyemis, I say, more grace and more blessings upon your already impactful lives.
