A community school for all (children) in Fiarenana



The community asked Zahana to help them build their school. Over 50 children age 5-15 have no access to a school, others must walk for 1-2 hours to attend overcrowded schools in other villages.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In keeping with our participatory philosophy, Zahana pays for materials out of reach for the villagers (doors, roofing iron, nails, cement, paint etc), while they will contribute locally available materials, bricks and their labor. Zahana will find, hire and train one teacher for all students. In addition to the children’s school curriculum, a strong focus on agriculture, crop improvement and adult literacy the teacher’s assignment in providing continuing community wide education for everybody.

How will this project solve this problem?

Building a school for their children emerged as highest priority after a clean water system was successfully built. The community requested Zahana to refocus activities on a school and education by making the bricks and donating the land already.

Potential Long Term Impact

Education is the key for a better future for all their children. Having a teacher work and live in their community can assure that goal for everybody. Complemented by adult education Zahana’s envisioned rural university becomes a reality for all.
