The telecommunications company Airtel has yet again extended a hand of generosity to the district of Takamaka through a donation of equipment to the district Primary school.
This took place during a short ceremony held at the school crèche in the presence of the Managing Director of Airtel Mr Amadou Dina and staff, Director for Primary Schools Mr Cyril Pillay, the Head teacher Mrs Magda Rose, teachers and pupils of Takamaka School.
The Managing Director Mr Dina handed over a printer, computer set with Internet connection. He then proceeded to reward eleven school children from P1 to P6, for their commendable performance and behaviour during the course of the year.
Mr Pillay and Ms Rose hailed Airtel's gesture as exemplary and coming at a time when the crèche was in need.
The IT equipment will be a boost to the teachers' research and planning effort and as such will significantly improve efficiency.
In their expressions of gratitude, they praised the company's vital contributions towards the overall support of educational development in our schools.
The school was also presented with some football equipment comprising T-shirts, shoes, bags and balls, courtesy of Seychelles Football Federation, one of the Airtel's partners in the promotion of the "beautiful game".
According to Airtel's CSR Cordinator Mrs Marie-Pierre Volcere "Takamaka school has been chosen to benefit from this donation as we felt that it was necessary to reach out as far as wide as possible. Our mission is to try and touch the lives of those in need ".
