Learn Africa Education Development Foundation (LAEDF) is the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of Learn Africa Plc, the foremost learning resource company.
The Foundation was established in 2012 to, among other things, promote learning and encourage academic excellence in the country. This, it does through the annual LearnAfrica-NECO excellence awards which it began to hold in 2012.
The awards were instituted to underscore the importance of excellence in education to our national development. Specifically, the awards are aimed to encourage hard work, appreciate diligent scholarship and healthy competition amongst students, reward teachers for their dedication, and recognise schools that produce the outstanding students in the yearly NECO June/July Senior Secondary Examinations.
The Board of Trustees of the Foundation is chaired by the Chairman of Learn Africa Plc, Chief Emeke Iwerebon. Other members of the Board are Alhaji Salisu Bala Hassan (FCE), the Acting Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of Learn Africa Plc; Alhaji Awwalu Makarfi and Mrs Yetunde Aina, both of who are non-executive directors of Learn Africa Plc. The late Dr Stella Ameyo Adadevoh was also a trustee of the Board from its inception until her passage.
Presently, the Foundation is managed by Mr Toyosi Moronkola, a top Sales Manager at Learn Africa Plc, and ably supported by Mr Segun Akanmu, the Head of Publishing, Learn Africa Plc.
