Nigerian Turkish International Colleges Foundation (NTIC Foundation) has started distributing 13,000 learning aids to underprivileged students.

The project is known as “I Support a Child’s Education”.

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Mallam Muhammad Bello, who launched the project in Abuja, described it as “a means for our children to study harder and make us proud”.

The project, which started in October 2013, is supported by parents of students at NTIC, staff, Nigerian Turkish Nile University, Nigerian Turkish Nizamiye Hospital, ABINAT, Ufuk Dialogue Foundation, Galaxy Uni-Prep Centre, Vefa Travel and Tourism Ltd and Nusret Education Ltd.

Over 13,000 learning aids, including books, geometry sets, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, etc. were prepared for distribution.

The 2016 edition was launched in Kayada Junior Secondary School, Kuje.

Present were the Chairman of Kuje Area Council, Mr. Shaban Ishaku Tete, traditional rulers, chairman and directors of the NTIC Foundation and directors of FCT Education Ministry.

A beneficiary, Amina, said: “I am so happy for this gift by the NTIC Foundation. We are happy. Our parents will be happy too. May God bless them.”

Director of NTIC Foundation Mr. Fethullah Celik said they were “happy to make contribution to the students’ education life”.

He said: “Our contribution will continue. Since we just found out there is lack of water here, we are going to build a borehole for them.

“We are thankful to our parents, donors and supporters. This dream is becoming true with their contributions.”
