Nigerians all over the country have felt the positive impact of TECNO Nigeria. Well-known for providing affordable smartphones for people from every socio-economic class, the brand has since 2014, also included another way to give back to society, particularly the less privileged. This initiative is centered on helping Nigerian children get one of the things they need the most – education.
This year, the project sponsored by TECNO through the TECNO Foundation was themed, “Give The Nigerian Child A Future.”
Since inception, the initiative has made it possible for many children from public primary schools across Nigeria to win scholarships and many other prizes. As is the custom, schools also got free educational materials.
In Lagos; Abuja; Port Harcourt and Ibadan, there was plenty of laughter, fun, and games, as TECNO Nigeria made sure that our leaders of tomorrow have a memorable Children’s Day celebration. The event, which was held across the country, brought pupils from many schools together. After an examination to aid the selection, scholarships worth 100,000 naira were awarded to each of the best students in selected public schools and free TECNO smartphones were also gifted. In all, everyone went home with a gift from TECNO. There were also cultural dance displays, comedy skits, dancing competitions, among many other activities. Students, parents, staff, and members of the general public, were all present.
Everyone had a wonderful time and even parents took part in competitions and won fantastic prizes courtesy Africa’s most preferred smartphone, TECNO.
As children in public primary schools, the scholarship prize will go a long way in helping them further their education and be the next doctors, lawyers, engineers and more. The company, having realized this, has faithfully continued to sponsor this initiative.
As Nigeria’s population increases, the need for a skilled workforce will continue to be on the rise. It is a good thing a brand like TECNO, is for Nigeria and with Nigeria, in tackling this problem.
