Thank you all for your continuous support, patience and prayers towards our efforts to support poor communities. In our efforts to complete the project in Ehanle Primary school, we faced some challenges along the way especially as non of us are physically in Nigeria to carry out the project, there was alot of delays. We had contacted some contractors to help complete the building project but the quote given to our organization was more than the amount raised after the fundraising event. This change in price put us on a standby as we had to look for other alternatives. We were told to renovate the damaged buildings from scratch will cost approximately N2.2 million (approximately $8482.01) to N4million naira (approximately $15426.87)
We raised only $2535.00 for the project .
We recently got a new contractor with the help of one of our newest board member in Edo State who advised that the amount raised should be enough to renovate the classrooms currently been used. The classrooms as shown on the website have potholes, damaged roofs etc. We are taking the right steps to proceed with the project once the state government has been notified that we are proceeding to renovate the classrooms.
A letter was sent to the Edo State Education Board to get approval for the project of renovating the Ehanle Primary School. We will post the response once received.
