A NON-GOVERNMENTAL Organisation (NGO), The Destiny Trust (TDT), has inaugurated a multimedia learning space for children in remote communities.

The learning space is located at the Ansar-Ud-Deen Primary School, Arapagi, Ibeju-Lekki Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State.

According to a statement by TDT’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Athina Jeje, the learning centre is part of efforts to ensure that vulnerable children have access to quality education.

The COO said: “Setting up multimedia learning spaces in hard-to-reach communities is a vital part of our mission to provide quality education to children everywhere.

“Our multimedia learning spaces offer both online and offline access to digital learning content, along with solar electricity to ensure a stable and renewable power source.

“Each space is equipped with smart TVs or smart boards, learning tablets, high-speed Internet, and access to a vast digital library available off-line, making learning more effective, interactive, engaging, and accessible.

“Our broad education technology initiative promises to revolutionise learning for underserved children and their teachers.

“Additionally, teachers will receive intensive training on using technology in the classroom and maintaining the multimedia devices.”

Jeje also said that the establishment of the learning centre would contribute to bridging pupil-teacher ratio gaps and provide access to “standardised basic education content.”

Also speaking at the event, the Wajoba of Ibejuland, Mukail Kasali, while extending the community’s appreciation to TDT for the intervention, said for the Ansar-Ud-Deen School, which had been in existence for about 100 years, the learning centre would a significant contribution to technology education access for children in the area.

He said that the community had never witnessed such a significant private-sector-led education project.

He also lamented the absence of a secondary school in the riverine communities, which prevents many children from continuing their education beyond primary school due to the risk and cost of crossing the Lagoon daily to attend secondary school.
