A Kind female Nigeria teacher who has gone extra for her pupils by buying them school bags said she did it because the pupils had nothing to put their books.
The teacher, Moyosoluwa Jejeloye, said she noticed that 25 out of the 39 pupils in her class had no proper school bags. One sad incident of a pupil who lost all notebooks compelled her to take her kind action.
Explaining how she got funds, the kind teacher on LinkedIn, said she used her personal funds, and the help of family and friends, to do something about the situation.
In her words:
“Sometimes last term, one of my pupils misplaced his notebooks on his way home and we couldn’t retrieve it because the books where in a plastic bag (Nylon).
“It got me thinking and I realised that 25 out of 39 pupils in my class bring books to school in plastic bags!
“I resolved in my mind that this term, I don’t want plastic bags for them anymore! With the help of family and friends,I raised funds and got bags for them.
