Summary

The Community school of Katulumba, in the underprivileged Fishing Camp compound of Siavonga, Zambia, has 3 classrooms and 8 latrines for 500 students; Guardavanti plans to build 4 more classrooms and 18 more latrines, allowing proper education and improving sanitary conditions of attending students. Moreover, the school will be able to accept all the kids of the compound currently excluded from schooling due to lack of space. The funds requested cover the first half of the project's structures.

Challenge

The Fishing Camp is a fast-growing compound in the Siavonga suburbs. From 2010 to 2018, students grew from 84 to 488, but this fast-pace-growth was not matched by any change in the school premises. The school is overcrowded and without the minimum hygienic standards. Children cannot receive the quality education they desire and deserve, and their health is every day at risk: kids attend few hours of school per day (three shifts) and the ratio latrines/students is 1/60 (ideal ratio is 1/15)

Solution

The need was raised by the school staff and the community of the Fishing Camp compound, and the proper solution was studied together. This project will build 4 new classrooms granting students and teachers alike the proper setting for a quality learning and teaching. Additionaly, 18 more latrins will be built to comply with national sanitary sandards. Lastly, new staff houses will be built improving teachers living and working conditions.

Long-Term Impact

The campus enlargment will allow all kids to attend school, having the statutory school hours and not letting anyone out of compulsory education. This improved quality of education gives students better life/work opportunities. The right number of installed latrines will enhance the sanitary standards. Guardavanti and Katulumba School signed a long term partnership in which both parties commit to follow the development of the compound in the future, adjusting the school premises accordingly.
