Mrs. Ngozi Ogbodo, a Nigerian citizen in the Diaspora, has pledged to build toilets and other facilities for some schools and communities in FCT Abuja.
Mrs. Ogbodo, who is the founder of the ‘Hope and Dreams Initiative’, a U.S. based Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), made the pledge during an interview with journalists in Abuja.
Ogbodo said she would provide water facility and waste bins to assist school girls especially during their menstrual period, and the community as well.
“We have over a thousand girls on our menstrual hygiene program. We are going to build waste bin, construct toilets and sink boreholes here in this community. These are the programs we are targeting.
“Every girl must have access to toilet facilities, there must be wash facilities, sanitary pads in the schools,” she stated.
The NGO Founder also called on the government of Nigeria to be more committed to provision of necessary facilities for schools as well as taking care of girls during their menstrual period.
“We need the government to do more. The leaders need to do more, because when you are on the seat of power and you are not doing anything, the society will not move forward,” she added.
