Challenge

435 pupils are currently enrolled &studying while seated on stones in grass thatched leaking classrooms in Oyaro community primary school in Abim district; when it rains, children suffer severe colds. As roofing materials are easily destroyed by termites, parents are burdened to re-thatch classrooms after every 2 years. The school was built in 2006 by parents as corporate social responsibility to reduce overcrowding in &distance (4+ Km) that children used to walk to reach Kiru primary school.

Solution

The project will support the parents through provision of iron sheets, cement, bricks, & other building materials to build up better classroom blocks, latrines & provide better sitting furniture to improve on the learning environment for their children to get education as constant advocacy &engagement with relevant district authorities continues to ensure that the school is coded &taken up fully by the government.

Long-Term Impact

Better quality of life in the community due to improved educational attainment. Parents will be relieved from the burden of having to building school infrastructure every year-as it has been the case
