Bridge Edu-Gap Project in Awowo community.

We are excited to announce our upcoming 'Bridge Edu-Gap' project. A project which aimed at supporting 55 Children of 5 sub-villages of Awowo community.

Where is Awowo community?

Awowo is one remoted place of Ewekoro LGA along Abeokuta Ogun State. It is 30km far away from major express and an hour plus drive to Abeokuta and 45 minutes journey to Wasimi.

Awowo community lag behind in social basic amenities such as Electricity, Good water, and bad network. Children in this community walk 30km distance to get to the nearest government school. Most adults are farmers and traders.

Why this project?

Bridge Edu Gap Outreach in Awowo was inspired by the current situation of the community response to children Education. Some children had privileges of going to the nearest government school in the past but due to far distance some drop out while some could not afford to go there. Transportation cost which is N800 to and fro, was a burden to their parents who are financial constrained.

Thanks to Nurture for Greatness Educational Foundation who started a primary school for these kids within the community. The school is now approved by the Ogun State Ministry of Education. 

However the need for educational materials becomes a necessity for quality learning.

This project aim to support these children in this hard to reach community with Educational Materials in order to ease parental burden and to make learning interesting for children. We hope to flame up the fire of education in this children for a better future for all.

Why are we supporting them with Educational materials?

Sometimes in early January someone contacted us via one of our social media handles asking for our support with educational materials. But due to some limitations we could not over any help. 

We visited the village, engaged with the locals where we got some information about their current situation. These Children need our support but we can't do it alone. Your simple action will forever change the narratives.

Be the Light Initiative is appealing to you to kindly support us with a token, nothing is too small.
