Currently the 72 children of Bendele are having classes sitting on the floor under a falling apart shelter; during the rain season they can't attend classes. This project will build two new shelters, allowing to split the pupils in two groups; it will also provide desks. Two brick storage rooms will be built, to store the maize for the children's lunch and to secure the desks every night. The kids of Bendele will improve drastically their education, having the minimum standards they deserve.
The classroom is now a collapsing traditional shelter. Here 72 children are taught all together, and they have no desks, sitting on the floor. Due to the broken thatched roof, the children are not going to school in the rain season. The government is not sending the maize normally provided to schools for the lunch of the pupils, as there is not the requested storage room. This microproject will drastically improve the education standards of the kids of Bendele.
Two shelters will replace the existing, falling apart one. This would allow the two teachers to give classes to two groups separately, according to grades, improving the quality of teaching. The students will have desks, improving their concentration and abilities. Two small storage rooms, will be finished: one to preserve the desks in the night, the other to store the government maize. The pupils will: go to school all year round, have a decent learning environment, have lunch at school.
Education is the base for the future of every child: giving a better education to 72 children, they will have much better comprehension of the world, much better chances to get jobs or to create an income generating activity. This will make a big difference not only for the students lives, but also for their future families and for the whole Bendele village. Conscious of the importance of education, the villagers of Bendele are very involved and willing to help and do the future maintenance.
