Ikot Etene Primary School Rehabilitation Project
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
– Nelson Mandela
Our first project is the rehabilitation of Ikot Etene Primary School located in Edemaya, Ikot Abasi Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. This primary school which serves over 200 local students is in need of urgent repair and adequate sanitary facilities.
A school should be a place where children go to learn, work hard and hope for a bright future but hope becomes an illusion when your learning environment in itself presents a hopeless situation.
As seen in these photos from our recent visit, the school is in need of major rehabilitation and new construction works as detailed below.
The Major Components of This Project Include:
- Installation of potable drinking water/borehole system.
- Construction of toilet and sanitary system.
- Renovation of two existing classroom buildings. Renovation will include repair of walls and floors, installation of doors and windows, ceiling, electrical conduits, fans, lighting units, painting etc.
- Furnishing of classrooms with good quality desks and chairs.
- Installation of a school sign board.
- Donation of school supplies such as textbooks, computers, school bell etc.
The Goals of This Project Are:
- To provide clean drinking water for the students thereby reducing the spread of waterborne diseases such as dysentery, cholera and typhoid fever.
- To provide adequate sanitary facilities including toilets and hand wash sinks and educate students on the importance of hand washing after using sanitary systems.
- To rehabilitate school buildings and provide educational supplies with the aim of alleviating the educational disadvantages to the students and building a conducive and inspiring learning environment.
At the end of this project, we ultimately hope to improve learning conditions for all 500 students who attend this school but we cannot achieve any of these goals without your support.
