We focus on the installation of water wells and latrines at over fifty schools in Sapele and surrounding communities. It is our belief that by providing school children with access to clean water and sanitary waste disposal, the quality of education is increased.
We conduct annual book drives to raise funds to purchase textbooks and various school supplies for students in schools in Sapele. The approximate cost per student for a full set of textbooks and supplies is 25 US dollars. In 2013, we were able to purchase new textbooks, workbooks, and supplies for 228 students at Ewherie Primary School.
We also build sanitary latrine systems at schools in the Sapele region. With access to clean waste systems, attendance at school increases and keeps children safe from disease. From our fundraising through out this year, we were able to complete the construction of another new toilet at the Ewherie primary school.
