The selflessness of teachers in building and impacting the younger generation has again been acknowledged as a Non Governmental Organization ( NGO), Olubola Adeleye Foundation ( OAF), organized a training programme for teachers to celebrate and honour them for their commitment in spite of all odds.
At the programme held in Ekiti for teachers by OAF, the Founder, Mrs. Adeleye said a lot of teachers are not motivated by the meagre sum paid to keep them at their respective places of work but are committed to building up the students because of their passion and as such, they must be appreciated for doing such a good job.
According to her, the gesture is OAF’s way of giving back to the teachers. “What I usually do is to design beautiful certificates and present it to them to acknowledged their services and that goes a long way to boost their morale. It makes them feel good”, she stressed saying appreciating teachers is something that must be consciously done because nobody wants to be a teacher anymore.
She however enjoined the people to look for ways to support teachers even by donating Biro’s, Pencils or Rulers. “Let’s make the resources to be available for them to teach. We all know that when funds are released, somebody, somewhere might just decide to sit on it”, she added saying her passion is geared towards quality education, poverty and hunger alleviation for the people.
