"Fireworks" was the code name for a ZODML project which established 4 new Oasis Libraries in Lagos State primary schools in 2014.
The beneficiary schools were:
- Anwar-Ul-Islam Primary School
- Anwar-Ul-Islam Girls Primary School
- Holy Cross Catholic Primary School
- Lagos Island Local Government Primary School
Planning for the project began mid-2014 and it was fully executed by November of the same year. Each of the 4 schools selected for the project were given over 1,000 books, furniture, decor, and educational games. The libraries were launched on Thursday November 20, 2014 (click here to read the goodwill message delivered by Mrs Gbolaha K. Daodu, Executive Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board at the event).
ZODML has pledged to continue to support these schools by training teachers to serve as librarians for the students and implementing specialised literacy programming. Below are before and after images of each school library:
