With determination, resolve and resilience, we are driving our vision of providing a well equipped Library for Apete Ayegun Community High School, one of our host schools in the year 2016 to reality.

Our belief in sustainable investment in infrastructure, facilities and resources for learning,including books,new technologies and the internet as a tool to drive quality education has been the motivating factor behind the #BookDrive project. With tremendous support from SDGsNGA Action Group, over 4279 books has been raised  from across the nation. Books Donations came from Teach for Nigeria, HBLN Publishers,BooKMySchool and several individuals.

We proceeded to the next phase of the project which is beautification and reconstruction of the proposed Library room towards stimulating the learning conditions and promoting safe schools. With over 20 passionate volunteers present, we took turns painting the room as we share the brushes in the process. It was indeed a gratifying feeling that we are creating this timely intervention to boost the performances of the beneficiaries in national examinations which is primary in our host of targets.

Its indeed a resounding fact that one of the best ways to build the next generations of conscientious citizens and responsible leaders while building peaceful and inclusive communities is through provision of community and schools libraries.

We are staying true to the vision; quality education for poor and vulnerable children in rural communities… Yes,We Can!
