Educate to Elevate
The students at UMKC Enactus believe that all children deserve access to a quality education, one that is not disrupted by a lack of basic necessities.
Last year, we began our work with the Community School in Ogwuokwu Nigeria to ensure that their student’s would no longer have to worry about choosing between an education and basic necessities. With the amazing help from our donors we achieved phase one of that goal by providing clean water to the school, where 400 young children attend. Now these children, their families, and 5 local villages that surround the school no longer have to worry about the accessibility or cleanliness of the water they drink.
With the momentum of the well construction behind us, we look towards phase two of the project - providing the school with the sanitary facilities that they desperately need. Over the past two months we have already raised nearly $1,000 allowing us to pay for the toilets and sink. However we still need an additional $6,000 to pay for plumbing, stalls, and construction of the facilities.
We ask you to support our goal and these young children by donating to to this cause and helping us provide these sanitary facilities so that 400 young students will no longer have to chose between basic hygiene and education.
