Rotary Club of Maryland has renovated Ewutuntun Primary School in Mafoluku area of Lagos state and also supported some indigent women in its community with micro credits.
 
For students and staff of the school, this is not the first time the club will be putting smiles on their faces as the club once took it upon itself to erect a fence for the school.
 
The club led District Governor Kola Sodipo to the school where he commissioned the newly renovated block of classrooms during his official visit to the club on Tuesday, July 10, 2018. 
 
“I am sure that the club has adopted this school and what that means is that the club will also consider the third school- Community Primary School and the district will also partner with you in future”, the DG added.
The Club President while addressing attendees at the commissioning ceremony said, “When we commissioned this fence, the Past District Governor that commissioned it noted that we needed to do something about this building which was dilapidated then so we decided to renovate the building. I want you all to continue to touch humanity and that is what Rotary is known for.
 
“This is one of the schools that we have adopted and I want to assure you all that this is not the last thing we will do in this school. We have identified one or two other things we will still do in this school”, he added.
 
DG Sodipo, in his speech, stated, “It is our desire to see the support and impact we can make in the lives of these children. I want to congratulate the management and staff of this school for being good recipient of Rotary Club of Maryland”. 
 
“I am sure that the club has adopted this school and what that means is that the club will also consider the third school- Community Primary School and the district will also partner with you in future”, the DG added.
 
Prince Ogunwusi Femi Ajibade who represented the Oba thanked the club on behalf of the Oba. “You have done what you have done, not because you want anything in return but because you want to make an impact in your communities. You have made an impact in the lives of these children, and this I know, will build in them the zeal to want to thread the part of humanitarian services in future”.
Also present at the commissioning ceremony is the School Head Teacher, Mrs Fadipe A. A. and the Parents Forum Chairman, Mr. Oladokun.
 
The club also paid a courtesy visited to the Palace of Oba Awushe of Onigbongbo Land. The DG and other members of the group were received by the Regent of Onigbongbo, Alhaji Chief Tajudeen Ajao Irawo and some other chiefs and sons of the land.
 
Speaking at the palace, DG Sodipo urged the men to encourage the children in their community between the ages of 5 and below to participate in the polio immunization exercise.
 
The Regent responded to the DG saying, “May God protect you all and provide efficient successors of your current leaders of the club so that there will be continuity of your good works. Very soon, we will be introducing you to our new king”.
 
During the club fellowship, the club presented micro credits to five indigent members of its community to help them start up a trade. One new member was also inducted into the club by the Governor.
