One of the remarkable milestones and achievements of the Virtual Learning Program was winning the Prudential Zenith US$100,000 Award Grant for “Sustainable Innovative Solutions birthed during Covid-19 Pandemic”.
This was done as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility action plan to support the education of underserved children who were affected by the pandemic and was funded by Prudence Foundation, the community investment arm of Prudential Plc in Asia and Africa.
This award enables the support, sustenance, and scaling of the program to reach more learners. Slum2School Africa’s goal is to reach 10,000 learners through the Virtual learning and Cluster Learning programs in the next year and this donation is being used to procure additional digital tablets and laptop computers for learners, teachers, and facilitators, as well as support part of the operational needs of the Virtual Learning Program and Cluster Learning Program.
The award was presented at the Slum2School Innovation Hub in Lekki, with members of the Prudential Zenith team present including Chuks Igumbor – MD/CEO, Isioma Olowu – Chief Commercial Officer, and Bob Ononuju – Head, Corporate Communications. Receiving the award was Slum2School’s Executive Director, Orondaam Otto, Head of Operations, Ruth Diyan Ebe, and other management team leaders.
