Summary

The COVID pandemic has interrupted the progress made in this rural community over the last ten years. Our young students could hope for new career opportunities in engineering, technology, banking, or teaching. They could plan for more education. All this is threatened by the pandemic. We are providing community based school every day so that children don't lose their hard won learning. More than 100 children attend. We need more supplies, books, paper, tablets, chairs and tables.

Challenge

The problem is that the investment in learning, and building community leaders among the students in our programs has been stopped by the COVID pandemic. We are pulling together all our resources to keep children learning, maintain their interest in school, their hopes for their future and their connection to their peers.

Solution

1. We are providing student and teacher led classes every day at our learning and technology center for primary and secondary school students. 2. If we have more funds for supplies to keep up with this demand. If students continue their learning they will not lose their hard won learning schools. 3.Our resources are stretched due to the additional burden of the COVID virus. Contributions will pay for our teachers who live in the community and help maintain hope and faith in the future.

Long-Term Impact

1. Students who can lead others, have confidence in their talent and gifts 2. Remove students from the risks of too much free time, and girls from unwanted pregnancies. 3. Our girl students have taken big strides in the last two years under the guidance of our fine young women teachers. We cannot interrupt this progress.
