As part of an initiative to get Nigerians involve in active commitment to community sponsorship, Action Aid Nigeria has launched community aid project targeted to raise funds locally for development of communities and people in grim need recently in Lagos.

According to the Country Director of Action Aid Nigeria, Hussaini Abdu said the initiative is a great program, Action Aid is a movement of the people around the world committed to transforming life and passionate about poor people and committed to transforming society.

“The world has no business harboring any poor people because there is enough to go round but there is no enough to satisfy our greed,  what some people are accumulating thinking that they are harbouring resources is what somebody need to change his life” he said.

Abdu said further that Action Aid’s mission is to eradicate poverty and injustice in Nigeria and strongly believe in mutual respect and social justice.

“we want to strengthen poor, students and communities to influence policies and practices that affect their life and right, to strengthen our own structure, our system and our policies to ensure effective, accountable and dynamic organisation”.

The Board Chair of Action Aid Nigeria, Prof. Patricia Donli gave an insightful view on how the project will work and how it will impact the lives of the people in the community.

According to her, Nigerians must begin to identify with the poor and invest to transform their life, it’s an opportunity to give and improve life and a lot of Nigerians are willing to invest. The idea behind is to raise fund locally and the fund will be invested to sponsors communities.

There are many communities that don’t have water and schools. When people invest in this sponsorship it will be used to fund these sponsor communities and you can see the money can be used for.

Donli revealed further that the money will be utilized to sponsor people in the communities in the country and this is the opportunity for individuals to partner with action aid, invest their money in the people and transform the life of the people. The minimum amount of money that can be contributed into it is 2000 naira to put a smile in the whole of community face.

Popular Nollywood actress and ambassador for Action Aid Nigeria, Hilda Dokubo who promised to pull in her colleagues in her industry, highly place people in politics and business to buy into the process to have a better Nigeria said it’s a wakeup call for everyone, we all must get involve.

Speaking in the same vein is Dakore Egbuson who is also the ambassador of the organisation said she feel comfortable with what Action Aid is doing.

“I don’t just put my name behind things, I want to make sure it is something that I believe in and if I believe in it, hopefully that will galvanize other people and that’s what I am bringing to Nollywood and we aill start doing movies that really impact the people life”, she said.

Egbusom said further that a lot of her colleagues are looking for a structured way to help but with what Action Aid is doing, they can go online to donate and monitor the progress of what they have invested.
