School EziamaProject Summary:

This project is an initiative to construct a two block classrooms at Group Schools Eziama, whose class room building felled and was browned up during a heavy rain fall.

Project Need and Beneficiaries:

Nigeria’s poverty has been decimating educational efforts as children in many parts of the rural communities face incredible obstacles in getting an education. Christian Fellowship and Care Foundation is raising money to construct a two classroom at Group Schools Eziama in Oparanadim, Ahiazu Mbaise, Imo State, Nigeria. The school built fifty years ago with mud blocks has been blown off by heavy rain storm. The children are learning under the mango tree . A great number of pupils stayed away from the school because of browned off building during a heavy rain fall. The remaining building-built with mud walls without doors and windows, blocks dilapidated, population explosion, insufficient desks, overcrowded classrooms and inadequate learning materials characterize the entire system. It will be a great relief to parents and children if at least a new two classroom block is constructed to save them from eminent danger and allow them to study in a very conducive environment .  Over 1500 children will benefit from the project, improving their literacy and education and giving them a brighter future

Project Activities:

The project will help construct two block classrooms, buy teachers table and desk, school desk, blackboards and basic materials for Group Schools Eziama.

Potential Long -Term Impact:

The two classroom construction will provide appropriate, adequate, desirable and acceptable learning environment for children to learn.

Benefits of Education

Educated mothers are 50% more likely to immunize their children than mothers with no schooling (Net Aid). It is a well known fact that the acquisition of literacy and numeracy, especially by women, has an impact upon fertility. More recently, it has become clear that the cognitive skills required making informed choices about HIV/AIDS risk and behavior are strongly related to levels of education and literacy. (EFA Global Monitoring Report). Education is not filling a bucket but the lighting a fire (W.B Yeats).
