I grew up in a small peaceful town of Ijebu Ode, Nigeria. Flash back some 30 odd years ago, it was very fun growing up as a kid with all the amusement and entertainment facilities being miles away, we had to travel a long distance to have a proper family day out and enterainment.
Like I said, it was real fun then as we didn't know any different but looking back now and considering nothing has really changed in the town, I wish the children growing up in Ijebu-Ode can have access to a communal affordable play area where children and families can unwind without having to make the journeys I had to make with my family to neighbouring cities.
Despite, the current econimic climate and hardship that families are facing, the children of Ijebu-Ode my childhood city deserve to have access to a decent play area like other children their age across in other parts of the country and across the world.
Funds raised on this platform will be used towards the construction of a building and purchase of the play area equipments from reputable companies. At the moment we have quotes from 2 company in the UK and USA and we know the equipments will cost between 120,000GBP and150,000 GBP.
I beleive that, happy children make happy families and happy families make a happy community. It is my hope that proceeds from this pilot play facilities will go on to fund othe such projects across the town and state. Please support thid project with as little as you can afford to give. Thank you!
