With 5,000 residents, Kpong is a secluded town whose residents have endured years of poor living conditions, including drinking water from a river that has been polluted with faces and other waste products.
Garba said that she decided to build the classrooms in response to the appalling conditions she observed at the school when she was sent there as her primary place of assignment.
In her words: “At the time I was posted here for my primary assignment, I discovered the need for more classrooms and the learning environment was not conducive for the pupils and the management of the school, even the structures were dilapidated and needed urgent renovation as most students received lectures under the trees.
“It was this horrible experience that gave birth to the idea for the construction of additional classrooms. Though at first, it was not an easy one to bring this idea to life considering my financial capability, but I was determined and so passionate to see that this project is put to life”.
The corps member urged wealthy people and the state government to contribute to the N3.5 million cost of chairs and other furniture for the school. According to the Guardian.
