Our current and urgent need is monetary support for our sanitation project. We recently committed to installing 10 toilets and stalls at Trans Ekulu Girl Secondary School. Students and teachers at the school do not currently have access to toilets that can be used throughout the school day.

Access to toilets is a basic and vital need for both the students and the teachers, and UIUCares is hoping to fill this gap. The project is estimated to cost about $20,000, and we have currently raised $13,000 towards it. Construction started on last month, and we hope to complete the project by the end of June of this year. Any contribution you can make will go a long way towards helping us accomplish this goal.

Donations for the sanitation project can be made here 2023 Sanitation Project

We were fortunate to have been awarded $900 through a grant from the Houston Global Health Collaborative, which enabled us to provide sanitary products to secondary school girls in a few schools in Enugu.



As students are starting school in Nigeria this
week, the UIU Enugu office is providing school
supplies to help students in need. 
For the
Students in Tech program, we have also been
fortunate to receive a $3,500 donation from
Mr. Chiedozie Okafor with the ‘From A Tither’
organization. The funds will be used to purchase
five Chromebooks, school supplies, and to pay
for school fees for students in Enugu. Our goal
for the remainder of the year is to provide 30
Chromebooks in total and provide workshops
to students interested in learning more about
technology. This is where we need your help.

Would you like to join us to complete our
goal? You can donate a chromebook or
its monetary equivalent of $300.
Please contact us directly at

Your donations have made, and continue to make, a positive impact and, with your continued support, we are hopeful that we can give more and do more in the future. Stay tuned for more updates on our ongoing projects in Nigeria as well as projects our growing chapters are doing here in the US! Please consider donating and let’s see what our resources can do together.
