Construction works at Seeds of Light school
We begin this report with a reminder that this project is implemented by the CR HOPE Foundation. Thanks to your generous donations received in April, we are pleased to report that the “Seeds of Light” school has expanded its capacity from 53 students to over 100 - by buidling 5 new classrooms. This was made possible thanks to you and the enormous support received on the ground from 20 families (more than 60 volunteers), who visited our project in May, and constructed additionally a state-of-the-art playground area and installed a solar farm as well.
How does your contribution make an impact in Zanzibar? Approximately 140,000 children between the ages of 4 and 15 are out of school. Poverty, lower educational attainment of the household head, living in a rural area, and being male are all factors associated with a higher likelihood of 4-15 year olds being OOS. By increasing the capacity of students in our school, the iliteracy rate in the village of Kizimkazi will be reduced further.
This year, thanks to your support, we are able to hire better qualified teachers who can further enhance the current teaching program and curriculum.
We depend on your continued donations to implement more components of our programming and to ultimately make our project sustainable.
Attached to this report are a few pictures with captions of the Seeds of Light school from the field.
