Queen Tracy Solomon, who won the 2020 Face of Nigeria Pageant, has donated a free borehole to Model Nursery and Secondary School in Jalingo, Taraba state.
The project, titled “Providing Access to Clean Water in Taraba State,” is the fourth community project the beauty queen turned philanthropist has started in an effort to lessen the strain and difficulties brought on by the country’s economic situation in the Northeast.
Located at the heart of Jalingo, the neighborhood is one of the communities in Taraba state that’s struggling with access to clean water. According to the beauty queen, she was moved by the complaints she got from some of the students and natives who complained bitterly about the terrible state of the water supply available in the community.
“This school was built in 1991. The students have never had the privilege of having water for the past 22years.
They spend an average of 4,000naira daily getting water supplied to the school for usage that’s is 80,000 Naira a month , which is 960,000naira yearly and equals 21,120,000 Million naira for the past 22years”.
Achieving the result of a clean water is way too expensive but this was a project Queen Tracy Solomon took upon herself to execute given her boundless love for children especially those living in unimaginable deplorable conditions.
“I am excited to have provided this clean, quality and portable modern borehole to the school which can also be accessed by the neighborhood”
“Like to appreciate Sir Kasimu Bushi for his kind support, my Family and all my project crews.
“I encourage well meaning Nigerians to also contribute towards providing basic needs and help revitalize the declining educational system in the country”, she added.
The light skinned queen also offset school fees of some of the students, donated chairs, tables and further shared gift items like exercise books, branded school bags and a fully kitted first aid box to the school.
In attendance for the Pet Project include, Taraba state Commissioner for Education, Directors of Ministry of Education Taraba State, Traditional Head of Mayo Dasa and some other Taraba state Government officials.
