We are extremely excited here at LagosHats to announce that we have made our second donation to St. Jude’s Anglican Primary School in Ebute Metta, Lagos. LagosHats did this on the 21st of November, 2016. This experience made us feel a range of many different emotions including joy, extreme fulfilment and satisfaction, pure excitement, humility, and pride in being able to contribute to the development of the education sector in Lagos State.
We donated school supplies including colored pens, pencils, exercise books, rulers, erasers, math sets, and many other goodies to all of the students of the primary school. There are more than 200 students that are enrolled in the school this academic year.
One of the most exciting things we at LagosHats included in this year’s donation were the customized exercise books that we handed out to the kids. All of the exercise books had the school’s name and its motto printed on the front page, and then relevant social and scientific information included on the back page. It gave the books a very personal touch. We hope they are proud of this.
LagosHats also gave out T-shirts to a few of the students, including the headboy and the headgirl of the school. That felt really awesome!
We were profiled on kpakpakpa.com. They did a wonderful write-up on the entire day of donations at St. Jude’s. You can read about it here. They also followed along with us for the sourcing of the products and did another profile here. Take a look.
LagosHats.com hopes to be able to follow-up with more donations in the coming years. The students and teachers of the school seemed very appreciative of our donation and that made us feel all types of mushy inside. All of this is only possible because of your support. We appreciate you all. Thank you!
