Speaking,the PTA Chairman described the school uniform and freebies as timely and one that will bring confidence to the students, as most of their parents could not avoid one.

He said " I'm excited about this donation, which is the 10th edition, this shows that we have passionate people in the society who understand the level of moral decadence in our educational system and are ready to contribute their own quota to the development especially with children who does not have access to the "city education ".

While the clearer picture was demonstrated by the students themselves when the change their old thorn uniform & other kits to a new one giving to them by AFEI.

While speaking, the Convener, led by Temitope Kolawole appreciated the warm hospitality received and the responsiveness of the school when the call was giving to the school. "For us as an organization we are intentional about changing the narrative around our people, and having positive optimistic that any of the students can grow tomorrow to become anything in life, either the President, Governor, Doctor, lawyer or international business mogul."

We are trying to encourage the students to be active and responsible with their studies. We can't fold our arms and allow the students to loose hope and confidence in education, the quality of the education can not degenerate while we all look away from the basics, while most of them come to school without school uniform. We must put a stop to such narrative.. That's why we consider this initiative of quality education, the SDG4 is very importantly.
