What a year! We are so thrilled with the progress that has been made in 11 village elementary schools this year—benefitting more than 700 girls. As we begin preparations for a new school year we can’t help but look back on this year as one of remarkable development. In fact it was a couple of years ago that we really made a significant stride when one of the elementary schools that we had been supporting decided they were ready to become a public school. Unfortunately, becoming a public school is no easy task. One requirement, among others, is that a village must have at least six classrooms in their school—one classroom per grade. After many years of providing construction and teacher training, the Alliance was happy to support the village of Tamala in their decision to become a public school. This year two other villages we have been working with over the past 10 years became public schools and three other villages are well on their way in the application process! We acknowledge the efforts of the village teachers and parents and look forward to making more sustainable progress in the coming year!
