In accordance with our mission to improve access to and quality of lifelong education, RETECH Foundation carried out a Paint Your School (PYS) programme in Niger Mixed School, Asaba, Delta State, Nigeria on the 13th of July, 2023. The PYS initiative aims to improve the learning environment in the school and hence improve the quality of education provided by the school. 50 SS1 students of Niger Mixed School, under the supervision of paint instructors, RETECH Foundation Champions and teachers of the school, participated in the PYS initiative by painting 5 classrooms in the school. This will improve their teamwork and leadership skills whilst imbibing in them, a culture of maintenance and taking responsibility. In addition to the 50 direct beneficiaries who took part in this initiative, over 1,000 students who will use these 5 classrooms over the next 4 years will be indirect beneficiaries of our PYS initiative in their school.
