This exciting project has a goal of building a classroom block at Kakongoka Primary School in Iganga District, Uganda. This will provide a safe and conducive learning environment and give 471 children an opportunity to access a chance at a quality education. The classrooms will help to decongest the lower primary classes by splitting them into streams and provide one classroom for the Primary 4 class which has been studying in a neighboring church or under trees.
Kakongoka Primary school in Eastern Uganda has 7 grades, but only 6 classrooms. One of the seven grades does not have a physical a classroom to study in. The available classrooms are congested, with up to 150 pupils and over, sharing a classroom and facilities that are ideally meant for a maximum of 50 pupils.
The new classroom block will help stream three lower classes and provide a classroom for the Primary 4 class, which is currently using a church or a tree shade as a classroom. By streaming the lower classes, pupils will be able to get personal attention as the teacher will be able to move around the classroom with ease. A conducive learning environment will have a direct impact on the learning outcomes of the pupils.
The project will provide over 471 pupils with a conducive learning environment. This gives the pupils a chance to attain quality education and greatly improve their learning outcomes. Quality education will place the children at the forefront of opportunities and enable them to rise out of poverty.
