WLFF/Bethesda Ijaiye-Ojokoro School Project 2012

150 KIDS, 1500 DAYS

 

This year, WLFF is returning to work with Bethesda Child Support Agency, an inspiring Nigerian non-profit organisation that we worked with in our 2009 Educational Project. Over the years, Bethesda has taken the lead in launching numerous community schools and offering free and qualitative education in poor communities. Having already built free schools in Bariga, Ikota and Matogun, Bethesda are in the process of adding a new moniker to their name by building a fourth school in Ijaiye-Ojokoro, Lagos, Nigeria. 

 

Bethesda already have a school building in place to make this a reality, however they need the funds and resources to fully mobilise this school by the end of this year. They are launching a vibrant new campaign called '150 kids in 1500 days' to raise funds for each child who will be attending the new school. They have worked out that it takes approximately 1500 school days for one child to complete six years of primary education excluding weekends and holidays, hence the slogan '150 kids, 1500 days'

 

 

150 kids, 1500 days… its got a ring to it right? We think so too - hence why we are getting involved!

 

Having already worked with Bethesda in 2009, WLFF is partnering again to raise funds for much needed educational materials (textbooks, notebooks, writing and art materials) and sports equipment to get the Ijaiye-Ojokoro school fully resourced and make the promise of a primary school education a reality for the children living in this area.
