In our humanitarian visits to the less priviledge communities in Kwara, we realized that providing them foodstuff, clothing and other relief materials were not just enough. Our team discovered that there are lots of capital projects needed in these communities, many of them do not have schools, very few have good road networks and most of them do not have access to portable water. After several deliberations and adoption scale of preference , we took it upon ourselves to provide these communities with portable water by reaching out to well meaning Nigerians and good people around the world.
The amount of fresh water on the planet has been fairly constant overtime – continually recycled through the atmosphere and back into our cups – the population has exploded. This means that every year, the competition for clean, copious supply of water for drinking and other domestic uses and sustaining life intensifies. Efforts must be put in place to make people have access to water.
Before we visited these communities, water scarcity have always been an abstract concept to us as it have been a stark reality for people in Omilende, and many more scarcity-hit communities across the globe. It is the result of myriad environmental, political, economic and social forces.
Eagles’ Foundation for Humanity have decided to tackle this problem by con
structing a borehole water supply and orientating the people of omilende on ways of managing water crisis.
