Project 2 Description

Primary School Umuezeagu is about two miles from Community School in Ehume. There has never been a school in Umuezeagu. Moved by the interest and anticipated support of the EFEF and with significant support from local, State, and National leaders, the Umuezeagu citizens held a great history-making meeting on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2002, and undertook the planning, preparation, equipping, and staffing of a 2-room Primary School in Umuezeagu. According to Dr. Duruji, Commissioner of Imo State Ministry of Education, [http://www.imoedu.org], he will see to it that the new school becomes one of the first in Imo State to acquire the LEA status recently announced by Mr. President Obasanjo. With financial support from local leaders and EFEF members and with material and labor donations from local citizens, we expect this school to be fully operational by September 2002.
bulletThe primary role of the EFEF will be to seek donations of math, science, and English books and related teaching aids for this school.
bulletAccording to Simon C. M. Iberosi, Special Assist. to the Honorable Commissioner, IMOE, Nigeria, " Imo State schools and libraries are in dire need of educational infrastructures such as computers and text books."  He further stated, "The logistics for collection, and subsequent shipment to Imo State is being worked out and you will be informed in due course. Meanwhile, please be rest assured that cost of shipment of all educational items collected, will be borne by the state government."
bulletFor details, please read this communiqué by Dr. Duruji.
