Last week Wednesday, GTBank renovated and relaunched two schools in Kano as part of the Adopt-a-School programme, a child-focused programme introduced by the Bank in 2004, to improve the quality of public education available to the Nigerian child. The schools – Girls Secondary School and Kofar-Kudu Special Primary School – were commissioned by the MD of GTBank Mr Segun Agbaje, with the Governor of Kano Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II at the Emir’s palace. Check out the awesome photos taken during the event, and pictures of what the schools looked like before and after renovation. 

The Adopt-a-School programme is designed to support schools in high density areas across the nation. We have to date, fully adopted 6 schools and partially adopted/supported several other schools across the geo-political zones of the country. A school is chosen and adopted (based on set out criteria). Once a school is adopted, we focus on 3 core elements to ensure consistency in set standards:
– Provision and/or upgrade of infrastructure such as buildings, basic amenities, furniture and beautification of the environment – this ensures that there is a conducive learning environment.
– Capacity building for teachers through trainings – this ensures capacity development is sustained and our children have access to quality education.
– Capacity building for students through scholarship programmes, coaching classes, provision of basic school materials and extra-curricular/physical education – this ensures healthy competition and physical development amongst students.
