Adopt a School Initiative

Guaranty Trust Bank’s Making a Difference
A significant share of the bank’s earnings has been used to support education over the years because of our conviction that quality education is important for any individual or societal advancement. This conviction influenced the initiation of the Adopt-a-School programme in 2004 when the Bank adopted St. Georges Boys and Girls primary schools, Falomo, Lagos.

The Adopt-a-School programme is a Guaranty Trust Bank initiative aimed at improving child education across the country. The thrust of the project involves identifying, adopting, renovating and rehabilitating dilapidated public schools nationwide; thereby creating model institutions of learning for children. After adopting a school, the Bank undertakes the following to improve conditions of learning:

  • Building, renovation and general infrastructural repair
  • Provision of basic amenities such as water and electricity
  • Landscaping and environmental beautification
  • Supply of furniture, books and equipment
  • The Orange Brightest and Best campaign e.g. Orange Quiz competition, Train-the teacher seminar, library education etc

Today the Bank has severals schools under the programme spread across its geographical divisions, namely;

  • St. George’s Boys Primary School, Falomo, Lagos State
