Temple has lived, worked and studied in various parts of Nigeria. His first degree was in Chemistry, which he obtained from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in Northern Nigeria. He worked at a bank for a number of years, where his main clients were petroleum companies. Pollution of ground water by various organisations and the rampant shortages of clean water in every part of Nigeria he lived in drew his attention to the need for a strong voice to advocate for clean water, which is accessible for all in Nigeria.
I am a social media manager with a bachelor degree in Land survey from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi.
I recall staying in a village in Bauchi called Gubi some years ago together with some colleagues in school; we had to walk several minutes to go fetch water from a pump or ride a bicycle to a borehole mile away.
When I saw what Hope spring’s aim and objective, I knew I should volunteer and be part of a cause that will change lives positively.
