TWWHI applied for a grant to raise the perimeter fencing to reinforce security and safety in their Harbour shelter, Eleko, Lagos. The funding was used for fence repairs, barbed wires, and external lighting.
The grant brought about tremendous relief to many women and young girls by providing a safe house and support services for survivors of violence, abuse, and trafficking. Through this, we have been able to secure and protect 20 women and girls by giving them a home away from home.
The grant catered for the monthly wages of the residential home-school teacher for a year as well as covered some medical expenses and provided needed equipment for the home school. Home-schooling was particularly important during the COVID lockdown period with many parents’ home schooling their children. These children, who are not living with parents but are in a orphanage, must not be left behind. This was the motivation for the Home School project.
This also empowers the teacher who in return is motivated and passion driven. Through this, they were able to give the 10 children in their care educational support by building a solid foundation that will give them hope for a better and brighter future.
