On the 29th September 2023, the RETECH Foundation conducted a successful Paint Your School (PYS) initiative at College of Commerce, Delta State, Nigeria. This program has the potential to significantly improve the quality of education for over 1,500 beneficiaries over the next 3 to 4 years.
The program involved the participation of 50 SS1 students who were given the opportunity to paint selected classrooms in the school. The students were guided by RETECH Foundation champions, paint instructors, and teachers from the school. This experience helped to foster teamwork, leadership skills, and instilled a sense of responsibility in the students for maintaining the school’s facilities.
The PYS initiative was made possible through the support of the Federal Republic of Germany Consulate General, who provided funding for the project. The RETECH Foundation champions in Delta State also played a crucial role in ensuring the success of the program. We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the Honourable Commissioner & Permanent Secretary of the Delta State Ministry of Education for approving the program.
Our thanks also go to the Principal of the school, the Vice Principal and the teachers who participated in the program for the roles they played in making this event a success.
