Rotary to provide toilets for schools in Enugu

NEWLY-formed Rotary Club of Enugu City Centre will provide toilet facilities in all female secondary schools in the rural areas of the state as part of its activities for the 2015/2016 Rotary year.

Registered on May this year, its President, Dr Eddy Ndibuagu, said the provision of the toilets was to ease difficulties encountered by female students in the rural areas in accessing facilities when pressed.

He stated that the club decided to channel resources to public schools based on the fallen standards in public schools in the state, adding that unless something phenomenal was done, the standard would continue to depreciate. He said the toilet facilities was also part of efforts to assist government provide for the educational needs of the state.

Ndibuagu said as part of the Rotary year, the club would next week kick start an essay competition in honour of Philanthropist, Chief Arthur Eze, in 40 secondary schools in the state, as a way of inculcating hard work and philanthropy among the students.

The competition with the title: “ I am a gift to the world”, according to him, was a way to encourage learning and improve standards, adding that it was one of the missing links in today’s education in the state.

Ndibuagu said the competition was being pattered towards Chief Eze “for the students to know that unless there are dedicated and focused, it will be difficult for them to make their mark while they live”.

He said that Chief Eze was a role model, who has deployed resources in empowering people and building institutions, stressing that, his name and activities have become a phenomenon that should be emulated by all.
