Start Date: 18/02/2024

Ms. Anne Rossmeier’s visit to Nigeria offered a window into the country’s vibrant culture and rich religious tapestry. Her first-hand experience began at a village church in Izza Nkubor, where she attended a traditional Nigerian mass. This intimate setting allowed her to witness the unique spirit of worship in the heart of a local community.

Following the service, Ms. Rossmeier was warmly welcomed by the parish priest for lunch. This personalized gesture provided a deeper understanding of the local hospitality and fostered a sense of connection with the community. As a token of appreciation, the priest presented her with some indigenous African foodstuffs, such as Garri and Palm Oil, offering a taste of the rich culinary traditions of the region.

This simple yet profound experience served as more than just a cultural exchange; it was a testament to the warmth and hospitality of the Nigerian people. Ms. Rossmeier’s journey through faith and cultural immersion left a lasting impression, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for the country’s unique way of life.

The Visit to the School’s Site

One important part of Ms. Rossmeier’s tour is her visit to the foundation’s school project currently under construction. Accompanied by the CEO, Director of Operations, and the manager overseeing the construction, Ms. Anne toured the various facilities taking shape.

A Look at the Learning Spaces:

The tour included the academic block, showcasing the planned classrooms, an ICT Lab, a spacious library, dedicated laboratories for Science and Home Economics, a staff room, a music training facility, and staff quarters. While construction was still ongoing, the visit provided a clear vision of the learning environment envisioned for future students.

Investing in the Future:

Ms. Anne also visited the designated area for the “strong room,” intended to house the solar power system that will provide alternative energy for the school buildings, security quarters, borehole, and water projects. Additionally, Ms. Anne observed the installation of electric poles by AAF, ensuring a sustainable and cost-effective power supply for the school and, potentially, surrounding communities.

This visit offered Ms. Anne a firsthand opportunity to witness the progress and dedication of the AAF toward building a well-equipped and sustainable learning environment for the community’s future generation.

Concluding her inspiring visit, Ms. Anne Rossmeier received reassurance from the AAF CEO, Rev. Fr. Christian, concerning the school’s projected opening date of September 2024. However, she expressed a desire to stay and witness the staff quarters’ opening on February 25th.

Ms. Anne’s visit may have concluded, but the journey toward building a brighter future continues.

Inspired by her experience, Ms. Anne will undoubtedly share the spirit of the Araceli Aid Foundation (AAF) with others. You too can be a part of this transformative journey.
