MAIN PROBLEMS

015  
1 The school has no library for the student to use in other to make studies goes on well.
2 The school does not have a good toilet and bath for both student and teachers use there is only one toilet and bath for them all.
3 It is always hard for those who are brilliant to make it out in the school. So they easily drop out from the school.
4 Parents found it header to pay for their wards admission and monthly fee. So it is always hard for the school to pay the teachers.
5 The school has no train professional teacher.
6 The school do not proved food for the school so teaching and leaning is not effective because some of these children whose parents can not proved food for them to bring to school or packet money always found it hard to learn.
7 The school has no scholarship for the children.
   
   
   
   
 

Justification

The global commitment of countries would be in vain if pragmatic measures are not taken to realise the Goals. Countries are left with seven years to meet the 2015 deadline of eradicating poverty, hunger, child mortality, maternal heath among others. In spite of the fact that the Goals are almost half way to the deadline, most people in Africa, especially rural areas do not know much about the Millennium Development Goals. The need then arise for awareness creation, pressuring government authorities to meet the 2015 deadline and the youth to engage actively in activities that can lead to the eradication of poverty and extreme hunger and other dehumanizing condition that the human endeavour is bedevilled with. This in all would lead to the improvement in the quality of life.
