From my recent posts, you will know that I am working towards a community-service project centered on water sanitation and personal hygiene. Thanks to America and my generous university, I was awarded a grant to sponsor my independent project, the reason behind this post's title. The first half of the project involves giving talks on water sanitation, conservation and personal hygiene in twenty schools. The latter half will involve installing a plastic water tank, using a rainwater catchment system, in a school in Mpape. Mpape, is a rural settlement 15 minutes from Maitama, with little or no access to portable water.
I have some construction experience but I'm still looking for a volunteer(s) to assist with or partake in this project. I already know this project is going to be so much fun and beneficial. If you have some free time in June and July in Abuja, holla, firstname.lastname@example.org !! Even if you don't want to help but just meet-up/chit-chat, still contact me
PS: I am sitting in Heathrow waiting for my flight to Abuja and I see a Nigerian jamming to a gigantic iPod because he is working around with an iPad. Jeez! I did not know people actually bought that gadget jajaja. I’m so glad to be going back to the motherland after a long time. I’ll put up this post, when I get to Abuja.
On another note, I want to explore Abuja this summer, no joke. Suggestions for hotspots and hidden goodies are welcome.
