Ongoing campaign

Campaign Status

Ongoing Offline: The campaign is currently ongoing offline and, thus still in the process of collecting funds. 


The campaign aims to construct 4 eco-friendly bamboo classrooms, powered by four solar panels and an integrated recyclable waste collection system in these communities, providing accelerated education to 100 out-of-school children.


Did you know that hundreds of children in Kwali Area Council, Abuja, want to attend school but are unable to? The FlexiSAF Foundation is addressing this issue by embarking on a journey to support 100 out-of-school children in two rural communities within Kwali. We are a non-profit organization founded in 2018 with the sole aim of tackling the alarming rate of out-of-school children in Nigeria, which currently has the highest figures in the world. To date, we have supported over 5,000 children in gaining access to quality education across 8 states in the country, and we are poised to do more.

Further exacerbating this unfortunate situation are the dilapidated roads, rendering these communities almost inaccessible for NGOs and other organizations eager to make a positive impact. Similarly, insecurity compounds the challenges, with frequent kidnapping incidents in these regions, especially impacting school-age children. The unsettling fear discourages families, particularly those with girls, from sending their children to school, leading to a substantial number of youngsters being deprived of an education.


In response to these challenges, the FlexiSAF Foundation aims to bring the classroom directly to two of these communities, thereby minimizing the risk of kidnapping and addressing parental concerns about safety. By establishing 4 eco-friendly bamboo classrooms within these communities, we are creating accessible and secure learning environments that encourage parents to send their children to school without the fear of long, dangerous journeys or security threats along the way. This initiative not only provides education but also contributes to the overall safety and well-being of the children and families in these areas.

Our 4 bamboo classrooms will be fully eco-friendly, powered by solar panels to provide energy, and equipped with an integrated recyclable waste collection system to promote sustainability. Thanks to our bamboo classrooms, 100 out-of-school children will have a safe and eco-friendly learning space. This initiative will further strengthen our unwavering commitment to sustainability under our Sustainable Education Program. We have already constructed two bamboo classrooms in the Durumi IDP camp in Abuja and one in Yola, Adamawa state, Nigeria, providing accelerated learning education to 100 out-of-school children. Now, our goal is to expand this initiative to 4 more classrooms, providing a safe and eco-friendly learning environment for a total of 100 children. Our classrooms will also be self-sustainable in waste management. We will partner with recycling companies to collect recyclable waste from families, volunteers, and the wider community. By converting these recyclables into funds through recycling, a simple act of donating recyclables will give a child the chance to obtain an education.

Why Bamboo?

The rapid renewability of bamboo and its adaptability to different climates align the Bamboo classroom with our Sustainable Education Program, showcasing our commitment to the environment.

Our decision to construct eco-friendly bamboo classrooms is not just practical but also a strategic response to the urgent needs of these resource-constrained communities, considering the affordability of Bamboo. Likewise, these eco-friendly classrooms, with bamboo mat ceilings and thatched roofs, adapt to different climate conditions, providing a conducive environment for learning and empowering young learners with not only knowledge but also instilling a sense of stewardship for our planet.

We are seeking to raise 27,888,700 naira (USD 22,000) to bring this vision to life. Your contributions will not only cover construction but also furnish these classrooms, provide essential educational materials, and sustain ongoing learning sessions as well as powered by using solar panels, ensuring sustainable energy.

As we embark on this impactful journey to construct 4 eco-friendly bamboo classrooms powered by solar panels and equipped with a sustainable waste management system, we earnestly seek your financial support. Your contribution will transcend just setting up a physical structure; it will spark a transformative journey for these 100 children. With your kind donation, we will be able to uplift these communities and provide a brighter future for the children who yearn for education amidst challenging circumstances. Together, let us bridge the educational gap and empower these deserving young minds, giving them the chance to dream, learn, and thrive.
