Summary

Our students are receiving a wonderful education but are crowded in to small classrooms. A new building would be more space and better conditions. The rent we now pay can be used to improve the asset and provide additional resources and supplies. The building will have a library open to the community and the village will have a place to meet for English classes, computer classes and other gatherings. This is "Step One" of the building project - a good foundation.

Challenge

Repairer of the Breaches School for kindergarteners through 6th graders is in the village of Cazale. The Lazarus Commission helps to sponsor teachers so that they will be paid and allows students to come to school who might not otherwise be able to pay to attend. Currently funds are being raised to build a school on property that was donated to the school. That will give them an investment in the future and use rent funds for other sources, provide more space for the classrooms and play yard.

Solution

The school started in a small rented building that they have already outgrown with over 200 students. Land was donated to the school and now the plans are to build a school with nine classrooms, an office, a library and a storage room. Children are now very crowded in some classrooms.The new building would provide a better situation in each classroom.

Long-Term Impact

This will be an asset for the school and rent money could now be invested in the teachers and students, supplies, books and field trips. The building is intended to be used for other programs including English classes, computer courses, group meetings and open libray for the community.
