Vodacom Nigeria pledges free internet to school in Lagos


According to a report via TelecomPaper, Vodacom Business Nigeria has pledged free Internet to the pupils of Saint Peter & Saint Paul School, managed by Loving Gaze, a non-profit organisation in Lagos to encourage learning among pupils.

The firm’s Managing Director Lanre Kolade who donated a fully-equipped library to the school vowed to grant free internet to the school in 2017. Kolade said, according to the report,  the donation includes various books, furniture and multi-media equipment to promote a reading culture among the pupils from primary school.

The report further reveals that it will also help to prepare them for secondary and tertiary education by enabling them to learn about the world outside their school and their immediate environment. According to him, the library donation is part of Vodacom Business Nigeria’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) to give schools, especially those in under-served areas, access to the same facilities available to students in major cities or developed schools.
