TABITHA HOME PROPOSED BUILDING PROJECT
Tabitha Home is a residential and supported housing service that caters to the needs of orphans and vulnerable children on a transitional basis within an enabling and conducive environment.
At Tabitha Home, we offer Practical,Support and care,Protection,Lifeskills Development,Medicare,Education,Training, Social Programmes/Activities, psychosocial and emotional support, and other necessary interventions to enable these children live independently and have positive outcomes.
Presently, we occupy a rented building at No 2, Kole Drive Joyce B Road, Ring road Ibadan with a capacity to accommodate 30 children and 5 caregivers/support workers. The proposed building on completion will accommodate a minimum of 100 children and 15 caregivers/support workers and will be fully equipped with necessary amenities.
Our vision is to have an encompassing environment for our target group of children/service users by building a multipurpose ‘all facility support centre’. Our proposed permanent site is located at 5, Shittu Street Joyce B Road, Ring Road Ibadan.
The objective is to provide them access to all necessary support service in a singular environment. Therefore, the centre will incorporate a
playground (sports and physical fitness arena), a sickbay, a multipurpose hall (library, chapel, dining area, training centre,) a conducive living area (duplex divided into flats) and an administrative office catering to specific and complex needs of individual children and service users.
Given the scale of this project, we propose to execute it in stages. The first phase will commence with the building of the lower shelter flats and supported housing environment, while work on the other phases will progress as funds become available.
The estimated total cost of the centre amounts to the sum of N58, 000,000 (Fifty eight million naira); we have been able to acquire the land for the project at the cost of N6, 000,000(Six Million Naira).
However, to enable us kickstart this project we require financial support and assistance from well-meaning individuals and likeminded organizations.
We shall gratefully appreciate all donations and financial support.
