THE Okuijorogu community in Okpe Local Government Area, Delta State, has commended a Non-Governmental Oranization (NGO), Deltawomen USA-Nigeria, for its interest in opening schools in the community.

The commendation was made when the Coordinator of Deltawomen, Elsie Ijorogu-Reed, and her team visited the community to acquaint themselves with the level of education.

The group has been in the vanguard of campaign to open schools in Okuijorogu community and distributed notes, pencils, and biros to the children during the visit.

A spokesman of the community, Mr Lawrence Ijere, said they were greatful to God and the NGO for its interest in educating their children.

He said their visit will further inspire the children to educational pursuit and thanked Elsie Ijorogu-Reed, praying God to sustain her.

Earlier, the coordinator of Deltawomen said the group had written and caused the government to take steps to open a school in the community.

She said they were happy that action was been taken, following their letters and promised to continue the pursuit for schools to be opened in Okuijorogu community.

It will be recalled that Deltawomen had in the past offered free eye treatment and provided reading glasses to the people.
