First City Monument Bank (FCMB), is silently impacting lives and this time, they had to travel to far away Kaduna state to support the government.
Even though every country depends on the government to grow, FCMB feels there is need to also contribute its quota to the society.
FCMB recently donated solar-powered lanterns to some selected secondary schools in Kaduna State as this is to help the student in their reading especially during the night hours.
According to the bank, “No fewer than 5,000 students have been impacted by FCMB’s donation of solar-powered lanterns to some selected secondary schools in Kaduna State. The aim is to positively impact the lives of the students by ensuring they enjoy constant power supply in their dormitories, especially at night (10pm to 5am). This way, they can study better and develop a stronger learning culture, paving the way for a secured future through education.”
This initiative is one of the different ways the bank is contributing to the alleviation of poverty, as well as the drive to attain the Sustainable Development Goals number 1 (No Poverty) and number 4 (Quality Education).
The lanterns were handed over to the beneficiaries at an event which had in attendance: the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science & Technology, Kaduna State, Mrs Kande Nana Bage; Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government Affairs, Kaduna State, Alhaji Adamu Mansur; Regional Head, Business Banking Group, Mustapha Lukman; Zonal Head, Business Banking Group, Gambo Wuryo, as well as the principals and students of the beneficiary schools who were overjoyed at FCMB’s gesture.
