SDG 6 (Clean water and Sanitation)
Provision of safe water in different communities has been part of the core values of TGAI. In Nigeria, 70% of households in rural communities do not have access to safe, clean water. Water is an essential commodity for human existence, however several rural communities in Nigeria are still denied this basic infrastructure for human survival. This pose threats to all concerned, even the nation. A lot of money is being lost yearly to cover the damages, both human and material, the resources (also human and material) incurred in the name of unsafe water. TGAI stumbled on this narrative and SDG 6 (Clean water and Sanitation) was created.
