Computers were also supplied and fully installed along with a standby generator and a water borehole. The renovation, furnishing and computerizing of the library came courtesy of Sir Emeka Offor Foundation (SEOF) as part of its educational intervention program in Africa. Sir Emeka Offor Foundation has given out books and computers worth over 22 million Dollars to Primary, Secondary and Tertiary institutions in Nigeria and 18 other African countries through its book distribution program. Other educational institutions in Kastina state had benefitted hugely from SEOF’s book distribution program in the past.
Sir Emeka Offor, the founder of SEOF believes strongly that education without appropriate educational materials is the clog in the wheel of African development hence his resolve to donate educational materials to African schools as much as he can. Schools in Tanzania, Angola, South Sudan, South Africa, Gabon, Zambia, Ghana, Botswana, Nigeria and so many other African countries have benefited from this program. Waziri Alhassan Public Library Daura is one of the libraries that have benefitted from SEOF’s education program which is in accordance with federal government desire for more private participation in education development in Nigeria.
