We adopted Uruegbe Primary School (UPS) as the pioneer school project for the 2021/2022 year starting November 19, 2021. Amongst other things, we have installed the very first School Library since the school was founded in the early 1900s. See Video clips and images below to get familiar with this educational institution.
URUEGBE PRIMARY SCHOOL, NIMO is a rural school in Anambra State, Nigeria which provides basic education to pupils in the community and neighboring environs.
Completed in 1903, the main school building was the oldest Catholic church in Nimo and Awka diocese.
Since its construction in colonial times, this historic institution has been educating pupils from Nimo and beyond. It was the first school for tens of miles around and students trekked to it from afar. My own mother taught there as a young maiden during her Teacher training. The school buildings and premises survived the Nigerian Civil War, was used by nuns as a “convent” and have been serving the entire area as an events venue for community meetings, weddings, sports meets and more.
Yet despite over a century of service, history, archeological significance and cultural value, the buildings are dilapidated and need renovation. So we started on that, in order to provide a better learning environment for the Children.
Under the leadership of its Headmistress Mrs. Ngozi Uyanna, Uruegbe Primary School houses classes for Nursery/preschool, kindergarten/Reception and Primary 1 through Primary 6 students. Its premises and learning quality can be improved on a lot and this is where we need your help! Over the next year, we will be focusing our efforts on improving the academic outcomes and well-being of the innocent young children attending UPS.
We are excited to see you interested in learning more and supporting our charity projects. Please Volunteer, give and stay engaged via our website and social media.
