A socio-development Group, Epe Renaissance 2015, has donated 300 forms for November/December diet of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) to youths in all 30 wards in Epe.
According to the group, the gesture was to complement the philanthropic efforts of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, who donated to social welfare institutions during his birthday.
President of the Group, Mr Abiodun Muritala, said 10 forms were given to candidates in each ward.
He expressed optimism that the intervention would increase the level of literacy of the indigenes and encourage indigent families to send their wards to school.
Since the introduction of the scholarship, Muritala said over 800 youths from Epe had benefited from the gesture.
The president implored the beneficiaries to put in their best into the exam, promising that group would offer scholarship to the best candidate in each local government and local council development area within the Division to further their education in the higher institution.
He urged public-spirited individuals in the Division to volunteer their time to mentor and share knowledge with the youth outside the regular academic classes to augment what they were being taught in school.
