The founder, Chibuzor Mirian Azubuike narrates her experience and adventures of being posted to the Northern Nigeria, Bauchi State, for her NYSC (National Youths Service Corps) programme in 2011.
Although at first she felt terrified, a lot of unrest were happening in the particular state where she had been posted to serve. The post election violence was on going, and gradually Boko Haram, the terrorist group began fierce operations in the North.
We implemented the #UnionHaskeWaterNigeria project with the sponsorship of Union Bank Plc to provide potable water in six states in the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
Water gives hope, water gives joy, water gives life. Over 80% of Children in rural communities in Nigeria do not go to school because they have to walk over 6KM to get water for their parents and run other errands which ends up taking the entire day. Female children are oftentimes unkempt due to bad grooming caused by unavailability of water in their town. Many ailments and diseases which cause deaths affect the villagers due to bad water. Together we can touch lives and put smiles on the faces of these wonderful people.
