Habu Initiative – AlYask3ri Primary – Learning In Happiness: Renovation of Two Classrooms

Date grant awarded: May 10, 2019

AlYask3ri Primary School Maiduguri, located in northeast Nigeria, is home to over 2,000 pupils who grow up experiencing hardships, trauma, and poverty. The space serves as a stepping stone in making the children happy while helping them acquire new knowledge to escape this seemingly endless cycle. Habu Ahmed has identified that more classrooms are needed for conducive teaching and learning to take place. A seed grant from The Pollination Project will help in renovating two blocks of classrooms, including renovating the walls, ventilation systems, and floors, along with replacing the ceilings and plaster. Once the project is completed, the students will embark on a new beginning.
