A third of this community is built on stilts along the lagoon and the rest is on land. Interestingly, there are over 100,000 residents here who are predominantly fishermen.

The Makoko Dream was conceived on May 1st 2016 by Emmanuel Agunze after he was part of a team in the Hult Prize that used the Makoko community as a case study. He decided he wanted to do a lot more for the community so the dream was born and operations started in December, 2016.[/vc_column_text][vc_progress_bar values=”%5B%7B%22label%22%3A%22Impact%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2299%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22custom%22%2C%22customcolor%22%3A%22%230b233f%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Dedication%22%2C%22value%22%3A%22100%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22custom%22%2C%22customcolor%22%3A%22%230b233f%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Capacity%20Building%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2299%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22custom%22%2C%22customcolor%22%3A%22%230b233f%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Student%20Happiness%22%2C%22value%22%3A%22100%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22custom%22%2C%22customcolor%22%3A%22%230b233f%22%7D%5D” bgcolor=”custom” options=”striped” units=”%” custombgcolor=”#0b233f” customtxtcolor=”#01b9e6″][saturnthemes_industry_icon_button link_tooltip=”Be a Volunteer” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-share” btn_size=”btn-normal-size” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fmakokodream.org.ng%2Fcontact-us%2F|title:Contact%20Us||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1461607094126{padding-top: 45px !important;padding-bottom: 10px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Meet The Team” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:30px|text_align:left|line_height:0.8″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” font_weight=”700″ text_transform=”uppercase” heading_style=”heading” sub_heading_character=”Our Team” sub_heading_character_color=”rgba(0,0,0,0.4)”][saturnthemes_industry_staff_grid image_size=”image-270-220″ enable_link=”yes” per_page=”4″ department_color=”#0b233f”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
