About The GAAP Resource Center

The GAAP Resource Center will offer Computing, Library, Arts and Crafts and Play Facilities to orphans and abandoned children aged 9 to 16. The planned opening is summer 2014.

 

Stage 1: Security (Jan – late Feb 2014)

External building modifications are required to create a safe and effective environment for the children we support.

Works started January 2014 with the demolition of an insecure low wall and building of new, higher security wall with an external guarded security station. The resource centre will also be painted to give it a fresh appeal to its users. We expect stage 1 to complete by late February.

Planned overview
Stage 2 will tackle the interior design, Stage 3 will look at the staffing requirements and liaisons with the homes we support, and Stage 4, will concentrate upon The Grand Opening. Details on each new stage will be provided as we enter that phase.

GAAP Refurbishment

The GAAP Resource Center, Lagos Nigeria had works completed to the exterior during the 3rd week of February, and we are so grateful to everyone who donated to make this happen.

Phase 2: The Interior (April – May 2014)

As it stands, the interior is dated and needs a complete redesign to convert it into a beautiful and welcoming child friendly space that the children we support will love and be eager to return to. Works will begin imminently and we expect to complete by mid-March 2014.

Images and updates will be posted over the next few days.
