The collaboration between Nigeria’s Access Bank, Intel and Chips, Bits & Bytes Limited has given children and teachers of Command Children’s School a reason to smile after donating e-education solutions for them.
This donation is part of efforts to increase e-learning capabilities and transform education in Nigerian institutions, beginning with Command Children’s School.
