PICK A PROJECT Just in case you don’t have a particular project idea in mind, here are some possible needs that you can meet:
School Sponsorship for 5 Children:We have identified 5 Children whom we intend to put in school. Here are their names and the cost breakdown for their education. Yinka ($120), Sunday ($78), David ($88), Rachael ($115), Chidinma ($100).
Entrepreneurship supportfor 5 widows: we intend to provide startup funds for petty trades and small-scale businesses so as to support their family. From our initial enquiry we found that these businesses would require about $120-$240 each as much needed investments to boast and grow their trades. Stated below are the first names of the Widows, if further information is required as regards the use of the funds we will be more than willing to provide the adequate information.
Classroom Needs Taraba State: In Taraba state we have a strong partnership at three villages - Maabi, Jaukotoro, Jaukoaba. Our partners in these community have started a makeshift school for these 3 communities but currently lack classroom buildings.
Dan Asabe, Niger State: Our partners here have started a makeshift school in this community but lack a physical building.
Miya, Bauchi State: We have also started a primary school in this village but lack a physical building.
Motorcycles for Community Health Workers: We have trained community health workers who help to fill some healthcare gaps we have identified in a few communities. We hope to purchase motorcycles for some of them to enable them fulfill these obligations.
Borno State Context: Bayo Local Government Area Bayo is a local government Area in Borno State in North-East Nigeria. Of all the States in Nigeria, Borno has been the most affected by the spate of terrorist attacks in the country. Since 2016, we have had the privilege of getting to know the members of this community and establishing deep friendships with them. In December 2016, members of our team met with the leaders and we have begun the conversation of working with the community in setting up a local health clinic there, to meet a few needs of certain villages in the local government. With keeping in line with our vision to facilitate the financial independence of the beneficiaries, as well as our work in the community, we will explore avenues for job creation within the community by helping establish local businesses. Below are some villages in Bayo and the needs that have been identified as high priority.
