Giving Back: The Bus is Here

1 minute read

Our First Success Story

We are delighted to announce that our alma mater has received the School Bus. After two years of planning and collaboration, on November 15 2013, the school bus, purchased by the FGGC Onitsha USA/Canada Alumni Chapter, through our collective fund-raising efforts, was delivered to the school.

We cannot express to you in words the joy, excitement and gratitude of the Principal, Dr. Mrs Chinyere Nzerem, the entire staff and students of our beloved alma mater.
