In our bid to sensitize the young ones in Lagos  State on the need to re-use and recycle, we decided to present the students of Oke-Odo High School with eighteen(18) ergonomic chairs remodeled from discarded waste tires.

18 Ergonomic classroom chairs donated to Students of Oke-Odo high school to teach them recycling early

We believe that any nation that must grow must focus on its young ones. Agreeing that waste is a global problem and there is urgent need to change the mindset of the young ones through projects like this, the Tutor General/Permanent Secretary of Education District 1 Lagos, Dr. (Mrs.) Olufolayimika Abiose Ayandele welcomed the idea and added that young ones needs to be responsible not only in education but also in behavior. She said her district is working to impact young ones with skill acquisitions so that once they are out of school, they can be useful to themselves and the society.
