AYPAD Boosts Free Education


In a bid to complement government’s effort in the successful implementation of its flagship free quality education scheme, the Africa Youth for Peace and development (AYPAD) last Thursday, 11th October, 2018, brought together seventeen Secondary schools to take part in a quiz competition at the Atlantic Hall, National Stadium.

Speaking at the ceremony, the National Coordinator of AYPAD, Philip Salis Bangura said the organisation is embarking on a one year project primarily aimed at playing a complementary role towards the free quality education scheme.

The launching of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) modeling quiz, he said, targets seventeen schools from across the country.

“Each of these schools will have to take one topic from the SDGs and analyse it,” the National Coordinator said, noting that the presiding judge would evaluate the analysis to pick out which one of them did an excellent job and would be crowned the winner.

“As you see, today we have pupils from the North West, East and South coming together to interact and with such interaction they would be sharing common ideas and experiences from their various communities,” Bangura noted.
