Daystar Donates Ultra-Modern 10 Cubicle Toilet Facility to Ajao Estate Junior High School, Lagos
When it comes to community development, Daystar Christian Centre never rest on her oars as this remains one of the guiding principles and commitments of the church.
This explains why, on Friday 25th October 2013, another developmental project was commissioned by the District 4 arm of Daystar Christian Centre. The newly built ultra-modern toilet block was handed over to Ajao Estate Junior High School, a public school located at Anthony Village, Lagos.
Officially commissioned by Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Barrister Mrs. Olayinka Oladunjoye, the toilet construction project was carried out to help resolve the challenges of the students and staff of Ajao Estate Junior High School, which had to do with lack of toilet facilities.
According to Mrs. Apata, former principal of the school,“Before now, the school used to have a dilapidated pit latrine which, overtime, became very dangerous to the students, mandating the school authority to close it up, due to deteriorating effects caused by erosion. Since then, the students and staff have nowhere to use as toilet facility until we took it to the attention of Daystar Christian Centre. I so much love the beautiful structure and pray God continues to bless Daystar as a whole”
In appreciation of Daystar Christian Centre, the representative of the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Brila, applauded the church for extending a hand of love. “We so much appreciate Daystar for supporting the government in meeting such crucial need and touching the lives of our future leaders, as the government can’t do it alone. Personally, this is just one of the numerous community projects I have seen Daystar execute successfully. This toilet standard is world-class and I implore the school authority to maintain it well,” she spelled out enthusiastically
While handing over the facility keys to the school, the senior pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, ably represented by Pastor Kenny Folarin said the standard of the building was purposeful to help the students dream of a better tomorrow. “As a church dedicated to raising role models, we have done this because we strongly believe that these children are the answers to our prayers for the future of this nation.” He also said informed all that the toilet structure includes special design to cater for the physically challenged.
The excited students also expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the church for coming to their aid when it was most needed. They also promised to maintain and take good care of their new toilet facility.
