The funds and materials collected during the event are earmarked for the much-needed renovation of their only basic school, the Amenga-Etego Basic School.

The Homecoming celebration was not just a joyous occasion for the community but also a strategic initiative to rally support for the improvement of their basic school and address other pressing needs in the area.
