GLORIA Diri Foundation, in collaboration with Rotary Club of Yenagoa City Centre, District 9141, on Tuesday, distributed dictionaries worth thousands of naira to enhance the learning capacities of students in Bayelsa State.
The distribution of the dictionaries, which commenced at Bishop Dimeri Grammer School, Yenagoa, was part of activities lined up to mark the Yenagoa Rotary Club’s Basic Education/Literacy Month.
Coordinator, Gloria Diri Foundation, Dr. Juliet Teibowei, said the organisation was passionate about providing care for the most vulnerable people in the society, including boys, girls and the elderly.
Teibowei hinted that the foundation was committed to making impacts on the lives of every Bayelsan, irrespective of gender as it is dedicated to the betterment of the society.
She advised the students to take advantage of the opportunity by judiciously using the dictionaries to ensure that the modest efforts of both organisations yield positive results in the future.
Teibowei, who noted that one of the ways to acquire education is through the study of dictionaries, stressed that education is a tool for them to be successful in life.
President, Rotary Club of Yenagoa City Centre, District 9141, Professor Izibeloko Jack-Ide, who was represented by the immediate past president, Ken Irokazi, urged the students to use the dictionary to boost their knowledge.
She also enjoined them to join the debate, press clubs and other school-based groups to acquire the needed foundation for their future involvement in the rotary club, if they wish.
