“Immediately we took possession of the sites allotted to us by the community leader for the projects, we discussed and reached agreements with our various vendors, and we started implementing our project.
“We made very good use of our Human Resources; we brainstormed and came up with brilliant ideas on how best to execute the project which we commenced on October 16, 2019. Having received donations from sponsors, we were able to mobilise vendors to site, and work commenced immediately” he said.
In addition, he stated that the toilet and borehole projects were completed on Thursday October 17, 2019, and commissioned by the Baale of Araromi, Ifako Ijaiye and Onifako of Ifako Ijaiye Kingdom respectively on the same day.

“In the area of proper waste management, we partnered Recycle Point, whose expertise came in handy. To motivate people to participate in the project, Vigour Reach team commuters were given cash and beverages as rewards for proper disposal of plastics. We initiated a health club within the community high school where we partnered Global Life Preservers group to educate students on basic First Aid knowledge as well as CPR. At the end of this exercise, participants were issued certificates,” he said.
