Obazuwa Community is located in South Region of Nigeria. The community shares common boundaries with Egbaen, Igbobi, Evbolekpen, Ikoro n’oke, and Agbomoba communities. Obazuwa is under the traditional control and administration of the Enogie, Prince Edun Akenzua MFR, who has been the Duke of the community since 1988 when he was installed by Oba Erediawa.
Obazuwa community is populated by predominantly subsistence farmers who grow cassava and Yam. The community host individuals from other ethnic groups including Urhobos and kwales from Delta State who over the years have enjoyed the hospitality and warmth of Obazuwa indigenes.
The community is approximately 12miles from the City centre and has received very little infrastructural attention from successive administrations in spite of the proximity to the heart of the State and huge economic opportunities and Natural resources. These years of abandonment has resulted challenges such as deplorable roads, lack of safe and steady flow of water (in fact, for so many years and even till date, a section of the community still rely on Oru river; a stagnant collection of water that dries up during the dry season as source of drinking water) poor health care facility, dilapidated market etc. These challenges over the years is responsible for the mass exodus of indigenes to the city to seek better life with better amenities and hope for their children.
Project 55, together with HwH Steps Challenge is pledging to bless this Nigerian Community with a Clean Water Well. These families who desperately need clean running water to live and provide for their children. It only takes $5,500 to provide one well and a generator, together as a steps community! We can never understand the affect and how far our American dollars will have in these communities of abject poverty. They will be so grateful to have clean running water! The need is so GREAT!
