Thanks to your generous donations, we successfully completed the clean water project at Government Day Junior and Secondary School (GDJSS) in Ilorin, Nigeria. The water project, which was started ealier this year, will solve the water scarcity challenges experienced by students and school staff. It will also serve as a reliable source of clean water for the people of the Agbabiaka area of Ilorin, the school’s host community. The newly constructed source of water on the school campus is a great relief to the water shortage challenges faced by the school and its host communities. This was confirmed by Mrs Shuaib, the school principal. She said: “The school complex consists of two schools, senior secondary school and junior secondary school, and the two schools share things. The water crisis has been a big challenge for our school. “
“It is a great relief for students and teachers at this time and for the community because water is life. Almost two communities will benefit and some people in the school environment.” added Ms. Shuaib. The GDJSS project is the first borehole project to be completed by Hope Spring in 2022, thanks in part to donations from the generous supporters of Hope Spring charity especially those that send our charity ecards.
Temi Odunride, Trustee of the Hope Spring charity, thanked everyone who helped make the project a success in a post the charity shared on its Twitter page. “I would like to thank everyone who has made the GDJSS water project a success. Starting with our wonderful eCard senders who have generously donated by sending Hope Spring eCards and special donors to our amazing volunteers for their valuable contributions, and the well drilling companies who delivered on their promises. Each group has been instrumental in the success of this project and I look forward to more successes in transforming lives together.” said Mr Odunride.
Earlier this year, we completed a well water project in Zariagi Community, Kogi State, Nigeria. The clean water project has brought relief to women and children in the community who have had to wait in line for several hours to fetch water to meet their household needs.
