Community projects executed over the years

2018

Water supply

We constructed new water distribution lines to replace the old lines at Oben Community, ensuring continued access to clean water. In addition, we constructed a water line extension to new areas of the Ugbokodo Community (Aladja, Ekokota and Amanwanren), and developed a water supply and overhead tank for Police Area Command in Sapele Okpe Community. The rehabilitation of solar-powered water project at Okuoghara quarter in Ugborhen Community was carried out. We recognise that access to clean water is a fundamental right and these projects have helped to eradicate water borne diseases such as cholera.

Roads

We completed the construction of the 5.5km Boboroku-Orogho road (Boboroku end) and we commenced the construction of the 5km Orogho-Boboroku road (Orogho end). In addition, we started the construction of Oben-Iguelaba drainage and road expansion, construction of culvert/slope protection at Boboroku Community, and completed the Oben, Iguelaba and Okirighwre field roads. Improvements in infrastructure have given our local communities better access to the market, thereby reducing commuting time, increasing community links and decreasing wear and tear on vehicles.

Market stalls

We constructed market stalls for several communities where we operate. This included 40 market stalls for the Obozogbe Nugu community in Edo State; 40 market stalls for Orodje market – 20 at Sapele Okpe Community and 20 at the Ugberikoko water front. To further empower local communities and support the local economy, we also carried out maintenance of key market facilities at Oben Community, including the maintenance of market stalls, water taps and the Town Hall.

Education

Aside awarding scholarships to 90 undergraduate students from the Sapele Okpe Community, we also furnished several community buildings during the year, including a three-classroom building/office at Obozogbe Nugu Primary School and a classroom at Okunigho Secondary School, which we connected to the national electricity grid. In addition, we renovated four buildings designated for the National Open University of Nigeria in Sapele Okpe, to encourage greater access to education for the local community.

Electricity

We undertook several electrical installations for local communities, including the installation of a 500KVA transformer at Okuovwori Village, Amukpe, and a 100KVA generator set at the National Open University of Nigeria.

2017

Water

We rehabilitated and remodeled Oben community’s water distribution pipeline network by installing solar power systems to replace the previously used diesel engine system. This improved both the functionality and sustainability of the network. We understand that access to clean water is a fundamental right and these improvements ensure that the community has access to an adequate supply of safe fresh water.

In addition, we have now reached an advanced stage in the development of the 5.5km Boboroku-Orogho field road. This improved infrastructure has given our host communities greater access to the market, thereby reducing commuting time, decreasing the wear and tear on vehicles and increasing opportunities for integration between communities.
