Project Details

Plateau State, Nigeria October 2020

Philanthropy work and services are more important during a crisis than ever. Social distancing does not mean social isolation. We’re all in this together! At VHF we are doing our part to contribute to the common good so that when this crisis is over, we will be proud of how we came together to keep our young people and communities thriving. We followed guidelines and restrictions set by the local health agency in Nigeria for staying safe during
this unprecedented period. Bravo to #VHFteamNaija for the completion of yet another successful project!!VHF and Plateau State Association (PSA), partnered-up with the Plateau State Governor’s office to provide Internet access and computers to four public schools in the remote part of the State. Along with the Plateau State Governor’s office and PSA, VHF spearheaded the donation of Internet connectivity and computers to Government Secondary School Shendam, Government Secondary School Nyak, Science School Kuru and Girls Secondary School Bokkos. During the installation and presentation of the computers, it was exciting to see the reaction of students at all four schools as they sit in front of the computers with Internet connectivity. None of these schools had a computer or Internet access on campus. For the very first time, these students will now have access to computers and Internet to research and complete projects for school work. Students will learn basic computers skills necessary to compete in the global workforce. Each computer is loaded with applications such as Office 2016 Professional edition to help students learn how to use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. A total of 30 PCs with 2 iMac computers were donated to the schools. An additional 10 computers will be donated to two of the four schools by the summer of 2021,

Many thanks to our donors for their continuous support. We also want to thank PSA and Dr. Macham for engaging the Plateau State Governor’s office which made the project a huge success!
