Challenge

World wide, there are 1 billion people currently estimated to live in slum communities. However, more than 12,000 slum dwellers including children, live in Bariga, Lagos, Nigeria according to the local census. These social cluster engenders a distinct set of environmental health problems and are at risk of diseases, starvation, pollution and death, especially students as they are not promised basic infrastructure, healthy living and safe learning environment.

Solution

FABE is working with schools in this slum community to provide toilets, clean water outlets, garden of food crops, repair classrooms, provide giant recycle bins, environmental health and waste management skill training for teachers, students and their mothers who are required to share their skill knowledge with their neighbors.

Long-Term Impact

The project will prevent 3000 students from contracting environmental health diseases, reduce pollution, foster environmental education, alleviate poverty and improve school attendance in the Bariga and other slum communities.
