Background: St. Peters School in Nigeria has been in operation for 75 years, founded on February 14th, 1945. Even though they had some classrooms, no single structure at the school was sound.  All of the classrooms and buildings were crumbling and unsafe.  Many children were learning outdoors, but these lessons got put on hold during the rainy season and whenever there was inclement weather.  There were hundreds of children who would love to attend school, if they only had a space where they could attend regularly. Since completion of our classroom block, we’ve seen a 25% increase in enrollment and we are thrilled! We hope  these numbers continue to increase and provide access to education for even more students in the future.
