Corp member renovates dilapidated classrooms in Kogi…
A Nigerian lady identified as Iheoma Sunday, has touched the lives of students at a school in Kogi state after she renovated their classrooms.
She user her mandatory one-year National Youth Service Corps programme to make the transformation which has earned her accolades online.
Taking to her LinkedIn page, Iheoma said that she decided to embark on the renovation as her community project in 2020 and took it upon herself to raise awareness and source for funds to renovate a classroom in disuse.
She revealed that with the help of the project, the students who could not continue their education because they lack a conducive environment to learn returned to their class.
Sharing photos of classroom blocks in their old and newly renovated state, the lady wrote;
“2020, The year I will never forget!
I know it’s a new year already but permit me to celebrate my victory today!
I completed a personal community project during my Youth Service (NYSC), helping to raise awareness for and to renovate dilapidated classroom blocks for a rural community in Lokoja, Kogi State. This project ensured that pupils hitherto excluded from schooling could return to learning in a conducive environment.
I am so fulfilled to have done my own little contribution to the society.
I look forward to doing more this year
