About Hopevision Children School

HopeVision Schools are schools established by the Organization Hope for HIV/AIDS International in slum and poor communities to capture and provide basic and essential Early Childhood Education to Vulnerable and poor Children.

The basic Education provided in all of our schools are Creche, Kindergarten, Nursery and Primary Education. Each of the School are located in hard-to-reach areas where there is no government public schools and for the poor and vulnerable children, whose parent cannot afford school fees

School facilities and the locations
  1. HopeVision School Ilaje Bariga
  • Ilaje Bariga is an overcrowded slum situated in Bariga LCDA (Local Government Development Area) of Lagos State populated by the “poorest of the poor”
  • Population Ilaje Bariga est. 50,000 with c. 30,000 children aged 12 and younger

• The Community is inhabited by various ethnic groups. Besides ethnic Igbos and Yoruba, Eguns are strongly represented. They are a non-homogenous group of people from Badagry and the Republic of

Benin Most houses built in Ilaje Bariga are shanties or simple houses constructed of wood situated on- or off-shore of the Lagos Lagoon. Family size is up to 10 persons living in a modest 1- room space.

  • Infrastructure is very poor due to lack of government support in the area: No running water, electricity only for a few hours/day, no paved roads, no sanitation/toilets, no garbage collection, no public schools. Accordingly, the area is covered with garbage and faeces leading to the faster spreading of diseases.
  • Living conditions worsen dramatically during the rainy season and the occurrence of tides when the area turns into a sea of mud and water enters many of the buildings 7
  • Most children are not going to schools due to the inadequate number of available schools, inability to pay schooling fees and low parents involvement
  • Despite this desperate situation many Ilaje Bariga habitants value their community and have no ambition to leave the place. For them the best way to a better live is improved infrastructure and job opportunities for which education and formation is key. 8
  • No public schools
  • Estimated 50% of children in the area do not attend school at all; the main reason is inability or unwillingness to pay school fees for all children

Programmes offered

The basic Education provided in all of our schools are Creche, Kindergarten, Nursery and Primary Education.

The School is parts of the community projects of Hope for HIV/AIDS International www.hopeforhivaids.org  a registered NGO with Nigeria Corporte Affairs commission.

 Hope for HIV/AIDS International (HFA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education, mobilization and health services to vulnerable children and people living with HIV/AIDS in the slums of Lagos • HFA was founded in 2000 with the initial focus to provide community-driven approaches in the mitigation of the HIV virus. Later educational and schooling projects became a second field of priority.

School facilities and the locations

Poor drainage and sanitation facilities leave a permanent foul odour at the bustling market and most residents must wade through several refuse dumps to reach their destinations; an inadequate public power supply means that noise and fumes from generators permanently fill the air, along with blaring music from the numerous brothels and film houses. None of this deters the slum’s numerous commercial activities, the most important of which is the sex trade.

Ijora-Badia is a slum community with virtually no modern infrastructure except for the dilapidated rail line that passes through the area, Ijora Badia is home to thousands of commercial sex workers who ply their trade day and night, beckoning potential customers from doorways. – virtually every house in the community housed sex workers.

Not many of the workers were interested in hearing about the dangers of contracting HIV.  it is estimated that there were at least 50 brothels in Ijora Badia, with the smaller establishments each having around 20 rooms and the largest having 120. Many other makeshift structures also provide rooms for sexual transactions, mostly at night.

Many of the younger women are from the mid-western part of Nigeria and have been tricked into coming
