Borehole repairs in Borno
Changing lives - one at a time.Auckland
I am raising funds to help repair boreholes in Borno Nigeria so that children can have access to clean water. The funds raised will go towards Lovatt Foundation.Org which was established in May 2015 by a New Zealand poet and teacher Fiona Lovatt , who has lived and worked with women and orphans in Nigeria since 2011.
Lovatt Foundation .Org is a charity which delivers high value, grass-root level, long-term projects in the red zone of Northern Nigeria. It has grown from setting up one orphanage for 30 children (of troubled Borno) to what it is today. Current projects include ‘COB’ – Children of Borno, ‘Gidan Almajirai’ Scholarships, the RUMBU Program, Tree Planting and Boreholes, to name just a few. Every penny goes a long way as the collective does not get paid, nobody draws a wage for the work.
To find out more about Fiona and the amazing work she does with the foundation please visit her website and FB page.
Tasneem Mohammed's involvement (page creator)
I am a Librarian and my first little project with Fiona was to find book donations for her "Books without Borders"project in 2008. Since then I have followed her work in Nigeria and once again I am getting the opportunity to assist.
Use of funds
Many damaged boreholes exist in the community. Funds will go towards repairs to provide safe access to water for poor families and income for local tradesmen. Lovatt Foundation.Org is involved in many other grass root projects.
