About 1,000 copies of Mama’s Sleeping Scarf by renowned Nigerian writer, Ms Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, have been donated to the pupils of Comenius Nursery and Primary School in the Ikola area of Lagos State.

The educational items were given to the elementary school by a leading proprietary investment company, VFD Group Plc, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.

The firm, which is committed to fostering growth across diverse industries in Africa, said the books were donated to promote reading culture among children and inspire young minds to explore limitless possibilities.

Mama’s Sleeping Scarf is the first book the author wrote specifically for children. It was unveiled some weeks ago.

VFD Group gave out copies of the literary work in collaboration with Narrative Landscape Press and GLG Communications as part of the Street 2 School Initiative.

The partnership, according to the company, underscores its resolute dedication to social impact and education, particularly in underserved communities.

At the presentation of the items to the beneficiaries, the Soft Power Specialist for VFD Group, Ms Elmer Aluge, urged the kids to remain steadfast in their educational pursuits, emphasizing the power of reading.

“Education is the key that unlocks endless opportunities. Let the pages of Mama’s Sleeping Scarf kindle your imagination and propel you towards greatness,” she remarked.

Moved by the lads’ enthusiasm, the Director of Business Development at Narrative Landscape, Mr Eghosa Imasuen, expressed his admiration for their curiosity and promised to relay their gratitude to Ms Adichie, whose work continues to inspire young minds across the globe.
