X3M Ideas, a Lagos based marketing communications firm has shown support and hope to the students and teachers of Government Girls secondary School, Chibok by donating 317 sets of chairs and tables for students and teacher of the school under its youth and education centered Corporate Social Responsibility, 2017 project.
X3m Ideas donated this in celebration of its fifth year anniversary.
It would be recalled that the school which has been subject of global focus no thanks to the Boko Haram insurgence was relocated to another school without adequate provision for seating. The school was therefore forced to operate evening /evening session for its students while the host school uses the facility in the morning.
According to Steve Babaeko, CEO, X3M Ideas, from the agency’s analysis of the situation, it was discovered that the student’s were facing waning confidence and likely to lose self esteem and focus because of the second best treatment.
Hence, our impactful annual CSR intervention, X3M Ideas chose to go to the extreme, difficult terrain as it were to deliver hope to the Chibok girls to mark the 5th anniversary. With this intervention, we are happy that the Chibok school students now attend classes in the morning as normal students should with bolster confidence and renewed hope for a better tomorrow.” said Steve.
This is the first time X3M Ideas will be moving out of Lagos for its annual social intervention projects. “Chibok is not only national but a global issue that affects all. We are extremely delighted to have been able to impact on this crop of future leaders” Steve said while urging other like-minded Nigerians and corporate organizations to lend a helping hand by supporting the government efforts. “There is nowhere in the world where the government alone can do everything”. he added.
