We are conscious of the fact that infrastructures like good roads and power supply present avenues to grow cottage industries.

Community Infrastructure and Sustainable Development Projects

CSR Initiative

At Connak Foundation, we seek to improve the quality of life in our local communities by providing basic amenities and community infrastructures through our various sustainable development projects.

More Info

We are conscious of the fact that infrastructures like good roads and power supply present avenues to grow cottage industries as it opens up market accessibility that allows ease of food transportation to urban areas and with effective community development, there is reduced crime rate, more jobs are available and an overall increase in growth opportunities for the youths and women.

We engaged representatives of various communities to identify their infra-structural needs and were able to make provisions accordingly.

Affordable and Clean Energy

Rural Electrification

Electricity supply had been a great challenge so much that moving around after sunset was difficult and the dark environment was a cover for vices leading to increased crime rates and heightened insecurity.

More Info

We extended electricity supply to Umuegwu Okpuala and provided Solar- powered streetlights around the villages and extended communities.

We have so far provided 165 Solar- powered streetlights within and around villages in Ohuhu land.

Social Development

Sports Development

Access To Basic Primary Healthcare

Healthcare

Primary Health Centers are built to provide access to basic and affordable health care services in the community.

More Info

However, due to poor management and lack of funds to maintain the health centre, members of the community are denied access to this basic amenity and further exposed to health risks. In 2019,

Connak foundation carried out a total renovation of Afugiri Primary Health Centre and also donated modern medical equipment and supplies.

Advocacy & Social Development

Community Advocacy

Connak Foundation also engage in community sensitization for responsible citizenship by holding a monthly community advocacy program for youths in rural areas.

More Info

As parts of our efforts to ensure all people–especially children–have sufficient and nutritious food, distribution of food and clothing items to women and children has become a permanent way to celebrate Christmas with the community annually.

Clean Water and Sanitation

Water Project

Access to clean, safe and potable water has been a major infrastructural challenge and posed a great health risk to the inhabitants in the communities.

More Info

There has been widespread speculation that drilling a borehole is an unachievable feat in Afugiri community, and indeed, in all its years of existence, not one borehole existed in that area. This claim widely attributed to the undulating terrain in the area, can also

be narrowed down to lack of advanced technical tools & technological know- how as Connak Foundation have successfully drilled 5 functional boreholes in various locations, an achievement that has left many in utter amazement.
