In January 2019 when the 450 students returned to the Oghwere Primary School they were met with an unexpected problem – damage to the school’s borehole meant there was no drinking water for the children.

Oghwere School is located in Okouvwori Village near Sapele, Nigeria. The school lacks electricity and running water and most of the school’s buildings have structural damage.  The only textbooks and supplies are donated by an International charity organization.  But the children come every day because without this school they have no hope for a better life.

And now the children have no water.  A borehole that was built by an international NGO collapsed in December.  Repeated efforts to repair the borehole failed.  Please help us to construct a new borehole at Oghwere School.  When children return to school in September we can eliminate drinking water as one of the things they don’t have.
