  1. Good morning… I’m so impressed with your work.
    Cleaner environment and good health hygiene has been my priority over time here.. looking at your work across the globe especially in Africa I discovered that Nigeria is not among the designated country you are working on .
    Please l have been working within my own limit to create awerenes and provide clean water sanitation, with the experience as a SDG president during the national youth service corps NYSC is a mandatory service to your nation after graduation from University. I was able to create excessive awerenes and construct toilets facilities and hands washing containers to the Ife North osun State. This community over time suffer alot from open defecation.
    Since then I have been working on this project.. but as an individual l lack capacity to be able to clean up the environment as expected.
    So lm seek for corroboration in Nigeria to help the terming population that are suffering from different sickness because of lack of hygienic environment.
    Please sir I will be looking forward for your response.
