British canteen gifts to Ivorian pupils

  Abidjan- Côte d'Ivoire (PANA) -- A school canteen donated by Britain was officially handed last 16 July to the committee for the management of Agoueto II School in Abidjan's Abobo district.
   The 300-seat canteen worth 8 million CFA francs comprises a Kitchen, a refectory and a store.
It has 43 tables and 80 benches.
   It is expected to improve conditions for pupils when schools reopen next October.
   "This donation is of immense social significance coming at a time when Côte d'Ivoire is going through a serious crisis.
It is also most welcome for parents as their children at Agoueto school had trouble finding lunch at midday," primary education Inspector, Ncho Laurent, noted of the British gesture.
