Thank you for your continued support of Roko 20 Academy. Donors like you ensure we continue to offer a full time education to the most vulnerable of our community's children.
Right now our pupils are enjoying being back to school after a four week break and have adapted to wearing masks and being social distant.
We are truly grateful to our donors who donated enough funds to enable us to build a new classroom for our current Grade 6 who will be moving up to Grade 7 when the new school year starts in July. In addition we have built alongside this new classroom a classroom which will be used as our computer/library.
In order to make way for construction of the new classes it was, sadly, necessary to demolish an original mud house. When we purchased the school land back in 2013 this was the only structure apart from a few wooden cow sheds, a tin shed we used as a kitchen and an abundance of napier grass. Over the years the mud house served us well and changed its functionality according to our needs. It's been used as the Manager's office, a head teacher's office, a nursery, bedrooms, a video room, a makeshift library, a volunteer's office, and up to recently, a store-room. The house has a low roof and would overheat in the afternoons during the dry seasons making it very uncomfortable to work and learn.
The new brick structure is a big improvement and the classrooms are now spacious, airy and cool making it a much more comfortable learning environment.
We are improving our school and the education our pupils receive, this is thanks to you and your support.
