Business Mogul and entrepreneur, Shina Peller turned 40 on the 14th of May 2016 and held a series of high profile events spread over a week to celebrate the milestone. However in furtherance of his philosophy of youth human capital development and consistently supporting the less privileged, Shina Peller took time out to visit three schools where he distributed state of the art educational tablets preloaded with academic syllabus .He also awarded scholarships to the ten best students from three schools in Lagos; Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted, Kuramo Senior College and Victoria Island Secondary School. The tablets and the scholarships are a reward for academic excellence which aims to spur positive competition amongst the students and ultimately raise the educational standards in public schools. According to Mr Peller ;going to a public school should not be a disadvantage, neither should it limit the dreams and ambitions of the students.
Speaking with students at Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted after donating an undisclosed sum of money along with desperately needed teaching aids, Mr Peller who is a patron of the school encouraged pupils that they can be whatever they wanted to be reminding them that people like Cohbams Asuquo passed through the same school and have become successful and respected individuals in the country. He promised to give the best two students in the school scholarships throughout their secondary education.
During his visit to Victoria Island Secondary School and Kuramo College, Shina gave powerful speeches at both schools to motivate students on the importance of education as a potent way to avoid poverty. He also distributed educational tablets to select teachers in recognition of their outstanding efforts towards teaching the students.
He also visited Lagos State Motherless Babies Home in Lekki which is also a yearly custom and donated much needed items which match their current needs.
Mr Peller also called on other well meaning Nigerians to continue to support the youth and less privileged in a bid to spur inclusive growth in our nation.
