Access Holdings has highlighted the need for improved education for future generations of Africans.The banking group stated this in a release on Sunday to commemorate this year’s Africa Day, which is celebrated on May 25 across the continent.

Africa Day commemorates the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (now known as the African Union) on May 25, 1963.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Educate an African Fit for the 21st Century: Building Resilient Education Systems for Increased Access to Inclusive, Lifelong, Quality, and Relevant Learning in Africa.”

Access Holdings said, “This year’s theme is a poignant reminder of Africa’s diversity and the need to address the educational challenges faced across the continent.

It added that, in alignment with that educational drive, Access Holdings would once again host the Access Bank/UNICEF Charity Shield Polo Tournament starting from the Children’s Day anniversary on Monday, in Kaduna.

This event, which will culminate at the fifth Chukker Polo & Country Club in June, brings together over 150 school pupils and their teachers for a day filled with sports, art activities, and messages promoting child welfare, such as “Stop Child Abuse” and “Childhood Isn’t Meant to Be a Nightmare”.

“As the largest charity polo tournament in Africa, this event highlights Access Bank’s commitment to supporting underprivileged children, having donated over N700m towards building schools and providing social amenities for surrounding communities in the past seven years.

“As we continue to consolidate the discourse around the 2024 Africa Day theme, the Group calls on Africans to unite, and invest in our incredible human resources even as we work to take our rightful place on the table of deliberations of global significance,” the statement concluded.
