The Professional Insurance Ladies Association (PILA) has instituted a social good initiative called the PILA Foundation and thereafter announced the award of an Education Grant worth one million naira to Faith Odunsi.
Faith Odunsi is the 15-year-old girl who stunned the world when she made history by winning the Global Open Mathematics Competition beating contestants from Europe, Asia and the Americas earlier in the year.
This was announced at PILA’s 25th Annual General Meeting held recently at the newly completed PILA House in Lagos.
Making the announcement at the virtual event, PILA President, Joyce Ojemudia, said this was the culmination of the association’s well stated desires to give back to the society especially its stakeholders and the female folk and described Faith as “that child that has become an inspiration to many.”
Accompanied by her mother, Oluwasijibomi Odunsi and Yinka Kawonise, the personal assistant to the Proprietor of The Ambassadors School, Ogun state, Samson Osewa, Faith was handed her prize to a resounding applause.
Responding, the recipient’s mother thanked the association for the award and prayed for the continued growth of the body.
