Challenge

Here, around 550 exuberant and ambitious children aged from 3-16 learn in shockingly desperate conditions. The tiny mud-walled classrooms - each crammed with well over sixty pupils - are in woeful states of disrepair. With collapsing tin roofs, crumbling floors so pot-holed they have disappeared altogether, and rusted wire mesh windows they are dingy, dangerous and depressing environments, wholly un-conducive to enjoyable and productive learning.

Solution

We are rebuilding an entirely new school, to include the construction of twelve fully-furnished classrooms, a dedicated nursery school, a fully-stocked library, offices and a staffroom, rainwater harvesting capabilities, modern kitchen and sanitation

Long-Term Impact

This project will have a tangible, immediate and lasting benefit for the hundreds of children at the school now as well as for hundreds more in the future.
