The challenges of rural schools and communities in achieving quality/standard education for all is largely dependent on the conditions available for learning, in this case, access to adequate facilities, learning aid and infrastructure plays a major role in achieving a quality education.

The lack of these educational aid has overtime been seen to have influenced the way in which children in these marginalized communities have fared in learning outcomes, same as their teachers who are also affected. In ensuring we continuously empower marginalized communities to hold their government accountable through providing information that will facilitate the tracking and monitoring of projects, the FTM team during its data mining process gathered that Adavi Local Government Council of Kogi State had tendered to renovate 2 blocks Of classrooms In LGEA at Zango-Daji community.

To ensure accountability and transparency in governance and to encourage citizens participation in budget assessment and implementation, Follow the Money team has initiated #RenovateZangoDaji to track the school project.

We call on all relevant stakeholders especially the Adavi Local Government Council of Kogi State to provide all necessary information for the successful monitoring and timely implementation of this project.
