Our Efforts

Problems Observed

Nigeria has many economic problems including communication between the government and the general society. Development and advancements within their own society have also lacked proving to induce issues in education and overall growth of the community. Health issues are also proven to be a prominent issue as some people cannot access correct medications and adequate hospitals to receive treatment. Some of Nigeria’s school systems lack the proper funding which directly results in poor learning environments.
