Aside from helping Old school mates reconnect, the reunion is majorly aimed at raising funds to rebuild the dilapidated school infrastructure. 

The Association plans to use this reunion and several others to give back to their Alma Mater which is why the reunion has been tagged “A time to give back”. As part of giving back to the school, four projects would be commissioned during the reunion: a new fence covering the dormitory area, a gate, two sets of six toilet and bath facilities and a kitchen.

ITREALMS recalls that Egbu Girls Secondary School was founded in 1962 as a mission school; it was taken over by government and returned to the Mission in 2010.
