Victor Moore Foundation Donates Computers to Sasa High School

The Victor Moore Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) dedicated to making a positive impact and enhancing educational facilities, has donated 20 desktop computers and 50 school materials to underprivileged students at Sasa Community High School in Egbeda, Lagos state. 

The initiative marks the organisation’s first project of this nature.

Executive Director of the foundation, Besidonne Moore,  highlighted the foundation’s previous focus on providing school uniforms, textbooks, and a mentorship program, stating, “This is our first project of this kind, but we’ve previously focused on providing school uniforms, textbooks, and a mentorship program.” Discussing future plans, she mentioned, “Looking forward, we plan to replicate similar initiatives in other communities and establish our own centres. Long-term, we aim to impact all six geographical zones in Nigeria.”

Despite facing challenges such as funding, timelines, and project approval delays from the district, Moore expressed satisfaction with overcoming these obstacles. She explained that the project took about 6-8 weeks from initial discussions last year to implementation this March.

Explaining the choice of Sasa Community High School, Moore said: “We partnered with them due to a teacher, who reached out via our social media. Our goal is to set up ICT centres, and seeing an underutilised computer centre at the school, we decided to equip it with 20 computers desks, and chairs. Additionally, we’re providing school bags, water bottles, and notebooks to 50 beneficiaries we’ve been supporting.”

Appreciating the support, Mr. Folarin said: “I extend a big thank you to Victor Moore Foundation for their wonderful support. This is our second major project; the first involved the contribution of computers by our alumni. Other groups, like the old students, have also supported us, providing computers and items for indoor games. Victor Moore Foundation has consistently assisted with various initiatives, and we look forward to their continued impact on the school and students.”

One of the beneficiaries, Ogunbode Michael, expressed excitement, stating that it was the first time he had seen such a project in his school. He said the provision of computer systems would enable him to become tech-savvy and access online resources when needed.
