With regards to the on-going construction of a block of Classrooms at Imoro Community Nursery and Primary School in Ogijo, we are glad to inform everyone that progress on the building is almost at the lintel level. This project which is sponsored by the Japanese Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects, is set to contribute to the improvement of the standard of educational infrastructures in Ogun State, with a view to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
Furthermore, KINDs Founder and President, Mrs. Hafsat Abiola-Costello, organized an evening with friends in New York City to share her incredible story of overcoming adversity and using her experience and voice to champion change. This event which drew friends and well wishers from across the United States highlighted the current issues affecting Nigerians, and KINDs activities to alleviate the plight of people in the country.
