As announced at the 2018 AmuwoCarol event, the SOP Initiative’s ConnectCharity team embarked on Amuwo-Odofin community-centered projects in 2019.
One of the main projects executed this year included campaign to raise funds for installation and deployment of FREE 24/7 solar-powered wifi services for resident users especially students using the public Library
The WiFi is opened to anybody that comes close to 50 metres circumference of the library.
We thought about sustainability from the scratch, it was part of the project. That was why we made it powered by Solar. Solar as you know is sustainable on its own. So without light or with light, it works. This wifi is powered by solar. Swift has partnered with us by giving us internet free of charge. There is no recurrent payment on this , which is also sustainable for us. No recurrent problem of electricity, it is powered by Solar.
