At Emmanuel Primary School, located in Ado Ekiti, Nigeria, many families struggle to pay school fees, buy uniforms and buy school supplies for their children. Schools suffer from gross neglect and have insufficient budgets to make much needed repairs to the school building. The school system is unable to provide essential supplies and books to the teachers and students. This is a direct result of the poor economic conditions of the country.
Dodson Legacy will provide basic school supplies to the 150 students who attend Emmanuel Primary School (Grades 1-6) to create an environment in which students can learn. These school supplies will remove many stumbling blocks and build a path to a successful future.
The first distribution took place in May 2018.
