In a bid to promote educational excellence in Nigeria and propel the nation towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Quality Education), Musa Halilu Ahmed Foundation founded by the Dujima Adamawa Alhaji Musa Halilu Ahmed, has empowered no fewer than 2000 pupils and 30 teachers of Government Model Secondary School Daura, Katsina state.

The foundation known for its charitable drive across the country in areas of education, youth development and poverty alleviation/wealth creation empowered students with materials such as school uniforms, bags, exercise books, textbooks and pens.

It also equipped the school with dozens of stationeries, public address system among others to boost educational/administrative activities of the teachers.

The altruistic act is borne out of the passion to reduce the current high number of out-of-school children in Nigeria estimated at 13.5 million by UNICEF, and to combat the menace of illiteracy in Nigeria.

The foundation have it as part of their 2019 goals to send 50 thousand out of school children back to school and provide over 200 scholarships to those willing to acquire higher education.

“We recognise that it is a big task to provide quality education for every Nigerian due to the limited allocation towards education, as such public school students and schools lack access to essential educational resources.

“We are optimistic that this programme will help to bridge knowledge inequality by providing students as well as public schools access to learning resources that aid academic excellence and enable teachers to discharge their obligatory duties seamlessly”, the Founder, Alhaji Musa Halilu Ahmed, said in a statement delivered at the ceremony.

Musa Halilu Ahmed Foundation called on well-meaning Nigerians home and abroad to contribute their quota towards nation building and invest in the education of the future leaders of Nigeria.

It added that investment in education equips children with knowledge and confidence with which they will grow up to live responsibly and productively.
