To commemorate July 18th 2020 Nelson Mandela Day, YALI Abuja took a positive community intervention action geared towards the educational and general well-being of over 100 orphans under the care of Alpha and Omega Orphanage Foundation.
Nelson Mandela’s life inspired us to “Take Action and Inspire Change“.
The Education impact and Health outreach project of YALI Abuja was geared towards addressing the education, shelter, food and health development of over 100 orphans and vulnerable children of Alpha & Omega Orphanage Foundation in Aso Pada, Mararaba –Nasarawa State by achieving the following:
a. Renovated the two (2) blocks of six (6) classrooms of the Orphanage.
b. Fixed two (2) dysfunctional toilet facilities.
c. Carried out extensive medical check up for the children
d. Donated relief materials such as clothes, food items, school sandals and bags.
The project provided an opportunity for the orphans and vulnerable children (above 100) in accessing education in a conducive learning environment.
