This project is to provide free and basic universal access to quality education and build 4 blocks of classroom for 1000 out of school children orphaned and displaced by conflicts in Buruku local government, Benue State, Nigeria
The 2019 TIV and Jukun conflict that took place in wukari, Taraba State rendered most children orphaned and displaced from their families. The Tiv ethnic nationality of Benue state flee from Taraba state and were repatriated and accommodated in an Internally Displaced Camp (IDP) in Ugba, under Logo, LGA. Lack of money by their parents due to poverty has made access to education difficult but with this initiative ,it will encourage parents to enroll their children in school.
