Educational Aid Global Initiative (Edu-Aid) was founded in 2005 by Pastor ‘Poju Oyemade, the Senior Pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, as the church’s social response to the standards and quality of primary education. This is achieved through innovative and creative weekly intervention programmes and activities in schools as well as scholarships and sponsorships for students.
Edu-Aid is designed as a community-based educational project targeted at addressing the identified education-related needs in public primary schools in our local community. Presently, Edu-Aid operates in selected primary schools in Lagos Mainland and Eti-Osa (Lekki) Local Government Education Authorities.
Education may be regarded as a method of leading people out of ignorance. It is a means of socializing human beings. It involves the brining up of a child in the community and constantly training him to adjust himself to the changing world around him. It is a lifelong process. Education is varied in its content and method as there are different societies in the world. The aim of education varies from time to time and from place to place. What one age cherishes as wisdom may be regarded by another as folly. The aim of education in a country should therefore be a reflection on the national aspiration of the people. This can be based on the experience gained from the past history of the people and their future expectations of themselves.
Give children enrolled in public primary schools an excellent start in education. Develop and equip children with the skills, knowledge, qualities and character traits required to make a positive difference in their generation.Educate a Child
