Location: Abeokuta, Nigeria
Project scope: 3 classrooms
Impacted Children: 360 students
Timeline: July 2020 construction start – September 2020 completion
Community Involvement: Tear-down existing dilapidated structure and clear away rubble, cleaning jobsite, security, unskilled labor
Coalition: Borehole and bathrooms built by LDS Charities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Background: The old classroom could not accommodate all the local children, so many students gather underneath the tree outside the building to try to listen to the lessons (see below). The new school is larger and safer for the local children. Scroll through the photos below to see before, during, and after construction.
