Be a Part of The Makoko Dream!

Published

Makoko waterside is well known for being a huge community of people vastly neglected by the seeming developed society surrounding it. The first set of people to settle there were the Egun people from Badagry; fishermen who survived and thrived on the swamp.

The Makoko Dream is an initiative founded by Emmanuel Agunze that aims to make a Makoko child dare to dream to be great and not be reduced to the confines of his/her environment.

With this in mind, The Makoko dream have discovered a way to reduce child labour is by education, and so they have started The Makoko Dream School powered by The Aliyu Foundation project.

The school building project, which will serve as a community and education centre will also serve as a centre for girl orientation as well as weekly skill acquisition centre.

To raise funds, they have decided to have an auction of items or services that will be donated to them items such as paintings, home decors, gadgets and electronics will be auctioned as well as services.

A silent auction will be held on Saturday, 29th of July at the Lekki Collisseum, Lekki Phase 1. This will be used to kickstart the online auction which will take place in August.
