Background: Igboedu Community Primary school is located in Ogun state in Nigeria and was established in 1981. There are currently 215 students that attend the school from four small camps: Aseph Camp 1, Aseph Camp 2, Akintubuwa Camp, and Elegba Okftz. The existing school structures at Igboedu are in terrible shape. Poor hygienic and sanitary environments have a negative impact on pupils’ health and there is no floor or good roof in the vacant, dark classrooms. The structure itself does not conform to construction regulations, nor do the windows and doors. Because of the school’s location on a waterfront, it is extremely difficult to transport materials to the school. We are so excited to see the impact this school has on the surrounding communities!
