“If everyone in our community is like AUN students, then our schools will be much better in all respects.”
These were the words of the head teacher of Jambutu Primary School, Jambutu, Yola, as he appreciated the renovation of a block of three classrooms done by a graduating senior, Natural & Environmental Science major, Maryam Ali Galadima.
The renovation which entails the replacement of damaged doors and windows, fixing of the ceilings, as well as painting of one block of three classrooms, gave the school a new look and made the environment more conducive for learning.
Having undertaken previous group community services with her mates including volunteer teaching at local primary schools, Ms. Maryam felt the need to do a personal community project. Some of them include food distribution to the needy in the community at Ramadan. “I have always felt like giving back to the community; it is what we have done in the past before joining AUN.”
The head teacher, Tahir Abdullahi, while expressing gratitude thanked AUN for its kindness towards them as they have been the beneficiary of AUN community services on countless occasions. “This project is not the first time we will be benefiting. AUN people have donated school chairs and renovated two classes with an office in the past.”
He also expressed the optimism that Maryam’s project would assist in effective teaching and learning.
Community Service is one of the core values of AUN; several schools and communities in Yola and its environs have been benefited from this scheme.
