Our first project has been the refurbishment of the junior block of the African Church Central School, in Onibuku Ota, in Ogun State in Nigeria.
A number of schools were visited before we chose to work with this one.
This decision was not hard to make, as the school was in a very dilapidated state…
…The walls were blackened from overuse, the roofs and ceilings were in disrepair.
The floors were broken concrete at best, the rest just bare dirt.
The blackboards, desks and chairs were in an equally poor state.
The windows were in a bad state of repair, old and tacky.
The veranda was in desperate need of repair.
The toilets were in a dilapidated and unsanitary condition.
What the children said
“The class is very beautiful now. We have new chairs, new ceiling, new flooring and the class has been painted and very beautiful.” Dami
“Before, our class was very dirty. Now it is very neat because they (the Bhamuson Foundation) have done it up fine.” Mohammed
“Before we were in this class, it was rough and dirty. It is neat and beautiful” Azziz
