Our vision is ''Making a difference in the grassroot''
Our organisation is making better life happen to poverty sricken areas in Nigeria and Angola through awareness programmes and teaching seminars. Plans are underway to empower these communities with free solar powered equipments that will make their livelihood easier
Communities we are reaching in these countries are the rural dwellers, some who still live in huts built with mud and thatched roofs and living in many cases below $1 per day income. Due to funding challenges, our activities has been limited to engaging the communities in awareness programmes on health hazards due to their living habits and generally enlightening them on better living habits and standards.
We are targeting a first delivery of better life products like solar powered cookers by the end of this year.
Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas
In Angola, language barrier hasbeen a major contention and we have been engaging interpreters on part time basis until a time a permanent assisstant can be engaged. As an African by birth, cultural practices has not been too varied.
The Partnership Ideals are new to us but we like to embrace it, acquiant with it and become an agent in publishing it as we go along our awareness campaigns
This is a worthwhile project not just for rural dwellers but also for urban dwellers particularly in Africa. My parents were well read and profitably employed but the cooking smoke in our house all through my childhood days was harzadous to our health and it should be decried. Better ways promoted by this partnership also needs to be publicised more especially among the educated-illiterates. My Organisation will be well pleased to engage more in this activity.
This is a new area to us.
A thick dense atmosphere rest permanently on the city of Lagos Nigeria while the residents are oblivious of it. They have completely aclimatised to air polution. It takes a visitor from a clean environment to appreciate this. The villages enjoy a cleaner and fresher air except that solid fuels cooking within their living quarters inhibits their benefiting from the better environment air.
