Update as of January 2019:

Happy New Year and thank you for your continued support! We are one step closer to providing clean water to local school children in Nanka, Nigeria, but we still need to provide electricity for the water pump to function. Please take a look at the BEFORE and AFTER pictures from our most recent trip in January, and share our GoFundMe page with family and friends.

Update as of July 2018:

Construction of a clean water supply at Community Secondary School-Nanka is underway. We appreciate all of the donations thus far which have made this possible! We still need to build a stand, purchase water tanks, etc. before clean water will be available to students. Please continue to support our cause and improve the lives of students in the community.

Our Water Project:

It’s hard to believe that one of the basic necessities for human existence and survival is still lacking in some countries. Nigeria, a country with many natural resources, lacks access to clean water in many communities and schools.

Community High School-Nanka is one such school with no clean water on the school premises. No clean water for students to drink when they are thirsty. Toilets have no running water and are completely unusable for students and teachers. The only choice these school children have is to go inside a bush or behind the school building to relieve themselves. Imagine a young girl on her menstrual cycle unable to comfortably change and properly dispose of her sanitary pads in privacy. You may ask where and how they wash their hands afterwards. The answer is, they don’t. Yes, they go back inside the classroom with dirty hands with which they eat and interact with other students. Not having functioning restrooms or water at the school makes it impossible for the children to maintain proper hygiene and may increase the spread of communicable diseases.

We at Nanka School Project (NSP) want to change the lives of these children by providing them with clean water and indoor plumbing so that they can learn in a clean and sanitary environment. Water is life, and clean water is necessary for good health.

With your help, these children will have access to water, a fundamental human need. 100% of all donations are used to support NSP efforts in Nanka. Your donation will go directly to the water project. Help put a smile on the face of these young children and make a positive impact in their lives.
