UPDATE - THE 6 CLASSROOMS HAVE NOW BEEN BUILT. WE NEED MORE FUNDS THOUGH TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT- The school furniture of desks etc is currently being supplied. The school library - currently built to foundation level, needs completing, which is our next priority. To follow this will then be solar panel and electricity, more toilets, and wash basins. The children now all have classrooms to be taught in and desks coming soon. Children and community delighted and grateful!
Inadequate infrastructure and learning outside the classrooms causes school children to be disturbed during windy, sunny, cold and rainy days. Poor infrastructure reduces children's concentration leading to failure in their studies. During a needs assessment that was conducted in May 2018, by The Ministry of Social Welfare, it noted children were attending classes in make-shift classrooms and the inadequacy of this to provide children with a good education. See Project document re funding plan.
Construction of the 6 new classrooms will greatly diminish the need for students having to learn in inadequate buildings, also suitable school desks to be provided. This will encourage children to attend school and give them more self-esteem, confidence and aspirations. The learning process will also be greatly improved with the provision of a library. The solar electricity is also important. Further sanitary toilet facilities and WASH training will also be provided
Over 300 children will have access to a school that not only has 6 new classrooms, and a library, but also electricity, more toilet facilities and a learning environment more appropriate and conducive for learning. This will ensure higher attendance levels at the school and a more positive view towards the importance of education. The health of the children should also improve - benefiting from all the new facilities including sanitary facilities for the girls.
