“My name is Huzaifa Lawal and I am 16 years old from Anguwan Dallatu Suleja Niger State. Am very impressed with the Hello Hub because I can learn how to type and I have access to the internet for free through the Hello Hub. I usually visit the hub 5 times a week. My favorite activities on the Hello Hub are typing, playing games and browsing the Internet. My future dream is to be a qualified medical doctor to help the people of my country Nigeria.”
Rural development remains a concern of many developing countries despite impressive advances in technology and increase in intensive developmental policies. Sustainable development and poverty alleviation in rural areas depend on effective common resources management and local governance. A successful example of NGOs promoting economic activity in the local environment and lifting ignorance off people’s life is Project Hello World in Suleja community of Niger State, Nigeria. The ten months old project in Suleja, is a proven success and one that has reached children in the school system, community members, district and community leaders- Christians and Muslims alike. .
