On Monday 14th of November 2022, the Lekan Bakare Foundation team was in the Apapa axis of Lagos State, where we visited two schools. First we visited Ladi Lak primary school, we joined the students on the assembly ground to educate them on the SDG 14 – Life Below Water and the impacts of pollution on the ocean and marine life.
Next stop for the LBF team, was Nanti Primary school, which can only be accessed via a boat ride on the Lagos Lagoon. Most of the students that attend this school come from fishing communities along the Lagos Lagoon and actually use boats to commute to and from school. Again, we sensitized the students on the SDG 14 and charged them to blue warriors and stewards of the environment.
The Lekan Bakare Foundation has adopted the Nanti Primary School and will kick of a recycling and waste to wealth initiative to help with proper waste collection and disposal while supporting the school with essentials like stationery, sports kits, books etc. We will be providing recycling bins and organizing collection of all plastic waste gathered at the school, which will have to be transported with boats.
