Students

Il y a maintenant 102 filles et 124 garçons au LAP. Our goal is still to have 50% of girls at the LAP. Some parents in the villages where we get the students for the LAP still prefers to send boys to the LAP. The parents who have sent girls to the LAP slowly realise the benefits of the boarding school. This is mainly true regarding the decrease of teeen pregnancy of thsoe girls.

Boys and girls have there head chaved, difficult to see the difference and the boys on the pictures.

Teachers

The Lap has now 6 permanent teachers. The LAP had only 4 last school year. The permanent teachers are housed on the site of the LAP. This improved the quality of teaching and also the contact with the students. On the picture we have also one the two temporary taechers.

Parents

The contact between the LAP and the villages is made via a parents'council. Two representatives per village formed this council. They are meeting at the LAP a minimum of 3 time per year. Following those meeting a parents general meeting is called. In this gathering the council communicates to the other parents the content of the discussions of their meeting. There are generally about 60% of the parents attending those gathering. Some of the parents representing often several students.
