Chitukuko Community School Phase 2, 2019
Build It was first involved with Chitukuko School, Chilanga District in 2016.
Your support meant we could build a desperately needed 3 classroom school, latrine block and teachers house for this community who had been recently displaced when their land was sold. The community were slowing rebuilding their homes and their lives on on a sparse and barren piece of land.
The new school opened with 3 teachers and 230 pupils in 2016 and has successfully grown with 7 teachers and over 500 pupils now registered.
This means that further building work is now urgently required to cope with this growth, and to ensure the school attracts qualified teachers to provide the best education to the children.
With your support we are currently:
- Building two small teachers’ houses, with an open plan kitchen and living area, two bedrooms and an external latrine behind the house
- Constructing an additional latrine block. As pupil numbers have doubled since the school was first opened, the original latrine block is no longer enough. We want to separate male and female facilities by building an additional block just for female pupils and teachers providing more privacy
