Crown Charity Trust, a non-governmental organization (NGO) is to spend N72m on the construction and renovation of public schools located in Iwo LGA, Ola-Oluwa LGA, and Ayedire LGA in Osun State. The founder and CEO of the NGO, Sefiu Adebayo Mufutau, revealed that the ambitious project, “Operation Help A Nigerian Pupil with a Better Learning Environment,” is aimed at improving the educational infrastructure in Osun State, Nigeria.
The N72 million project aims to construct, renovate, and furnish schools, providing students with conducive learning environments in Osun State. Additionally, a five-year scholarship will be awarded to a deserving nursing student as part of the NGO’s continued commitment to supporting education and youth development. With a track record of impactful initiatives, Crown Charity Trust is now setting its sights on improving educational facilities.
The State Of Osun’s Education System.
The state of schools in Osun faces challenges, with dilapidated structures and misguided projects inherited from the previous government. The new administration is determined to refurbish over 100 schools, introduce an inclusive board of governors, reinstate Early Childhood Care Education, and recruit 2,500 teachers to uplift the education system. The government aims to provide conducive learning environments, address religious and gender discrimination, and prioritize science education, while also ensuring proper management and credibility in the school system.
The project represents the first phase of Crown Charity Trust’s extensive efforts to support education across the country, with plans to expand its initiatives to other regions in Nigeria. In line with this vision, the NGO will launch a fundraising campaign to secure the necessary funds for the successful execution of the project.
Crown Charity Trust, duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in Nigeria, has been making significant contributions to the welfare of less-privileged Nigerians through financial aid and other forms of support. The NGO’s initiatives include the “CCT Students Scholarship,” which has supported two university undergraduates and produced a graduate now employed in the labor market.
The organization’s commitment to education and community empowerment extends beyond Iwo indigenous youths, as it also benefits individuals from various regions across the country. The NGO has been instrumental in providing financial assistance to students writing the WAEC examinations through the Iwo Descendants Coalition (IDC).
The fundraising campaign for “Operation Help A Nigerian Pupil with a Better Learning Environment” and the contribution of N72m to the construction of public schools in the Osun project will be officially launched during the coronation ceremony. Crown Charity Trust envisions a brighter future for Nigeria’s education system, with the active involvement of compassionate individuals and generous donors who share their vision for empowering the nation’s youth.
