We believe that all people want their children to attend schools that have tools such as chalkboard, desks, chairs, water, light, and toilets. Yet it is reported in the 2014 -15 Department of Education Enugu Census Report that 80% of schools in Enugu have insufficient seating Pupil-to-toilet ratio of 152 in public primary schools. Over 64% of primary schools have no toilet. Eighty-seven (87%) of primary schools have no source of water.
Nkanu Game Changers aims to engage others to change the current mindset in Nigeria that accepts this current deplorable state of primary public schools. Starting with Nkanu Primary Schools we commit to raising funds to equip each classroom with a blackboard (chalkboard), desks and chairs for all pupil. We will advocate for the state to ensure that toilets, water, light and first aid clinic is in all public primary schools.
To ensure that public primary schools in Nkanu land is equipped to promote teaching and learning for every child in a classroom with necessities such as dedicated teachers, blackboard, seats, desks, books, and writing materials.
To recruit change agents (impatient reformers) in America and across the globe willing to take responsibility to improve the lives of residents in and around their respective homes in Nkanuland, Nigeria.

how you can help
Game changers are individuals who have come to the realization that “If it is to be, it is up to me.” This may mean commitment to use personal resources (time, money, influence) to create a positive change without the expectation of direct personal reward. Game changers change things for the better, because it is the right thing to do. They stand in the gap for others.
