Access To Education A A Human Right

NAbalyo Primary School was in the interior and many people and villagers thought that the school will take time to emerge from their lack of school facilities. The school had only one teacher from the ministry of education, only one latrine mad walled and two mad walled classes. When the organization known as save the children Finland did a rapid needs assessment, they found out the struggling community in accessing education they came in handy and constructed four latrines, and a water tank and one permanent classroom. The child right personnel in the organization also gave support to unfinished classes and provided non-sheet to roof their two classes. The school hed now good facilities and many students in the area were happy because of the assistance.
