Creating a conducive environment, a must for learning.

Main aim of the charity

Igboora grammar school, Igboora Oyo state Nigeria, established in 1980 is in deplorable state now. The state of the school’s learning environment is appalling and needs urgent resuscitation. The school where I graduated some years ago is weeping profusely for help. The classrooms of teaching and learning are no more conducive for students to learn as shown in the video clip where students run helter-skelter for seat, the teachers struggle daily to teach under virtually dilapidated classroom buildings. Everything about the Alma mater is in sorry state at the moment. The buildings are in a shambles and the conditions in which the pupils learn are unfit for human beings, especially the young ones who are often referred to as the leaders of tomorrow should be groomed. While the roofs of some of the classrooms have been blown open, making sunshine and rain to have unhindered access to the poor children. The students are not happy about the condition, and they are worried more about the implications it has on their future. Their foundation is not getting the right fortification and the consequence is bleak academic future for them. The alumni of the school are beginning to come together to work very hard to bring development to the school but by and large, the school needs a huge sum for a complete rehabilitation, and this can only be done by the government or strong private sectors like DHL through its got heart program to support.

How the employee got involved and why

The alumni were formed some years ago, but due to the current economic hardship being experienced in the country, there has never been a meaningful achievement as this has hindered active financial participation of members.

What work does the employee do for charity

As an ex-student of the school, we formed alumni at different categories to ensure contributions from members are directed towards the actualization of the development of the school. The project was also put forward during the 2020/21 got heart entry where it was adjudged as the country winner where the prize money was channeled to a minor renovation of some amenities in the school.
