Changing lives - one at a time.


Over the last year I had been raising funds to help repair boreholes in Borno Nigeria so that children can have access to clean water. I am now focusing on the support of planting fruit trees a - project which has progressed slowly for last three years.

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.

Borehole Repairs and Greening project continues  27 May 2021

Posted by: Tasneem Mohammed

Salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatahu. Jazak Allah khairan for all your wonderful support. As our attention turned towards the atrocities against innocent Palestinians in May we did not continue with the borehole repair fundraiser so that people could contribute to assist the Palestinian people.

We have many boreholes left to sponsor if you still interested. Here is the list.

Or if you would like to contribute towards planting fruit trees $15 per tree with protection.

Anyone can join in with Borehole repairs. Those fasting during this lunar month may like to spend particularly at this time so that a parched community in Borno has access to the aquifers beneath their feet.

Cool, fresh water gushing from the dry sand in temperatures of 40°C+!

Such a gift you can give.

Scroll down to see the list of 41 for May.
