In commemoration of Children’s Day, AIICO Insurance Plc teamed up with Lagos Food Bank Initiative on the 24th of May 2024 to provide nourishment and learning materials to young children in low-income schools through the Education Enhancement Intervention for Food Insecure Students (EDUFOOD) program of the food bank.

“It is important to partner with a reputable and transparent organization; a good steward of resources that has been put in their care to pass on to the people that actually need them,” was stated by one of the representatives of AIICO Insurance Plc, during the partner’s address at the food bank warehouse before the commencement of the distribution. She also emphasized on the importance of celebrating children on their special day.

Leveraging on the observation of a special day for children, the partnership was geared towards encouraging the enrollment of the girl child in the school, reducing dropout rates among food insecure young students and improving their cognitive development and focus in class, as well as their nutritional needs for general well-being.

The partnership was a tremendous success, attracting a significant number of food bank volunteers who participated enthusiastically in support of the school-feeding initiative, ensuring a positive impact on future generations.
