231 children were enrolled at the community school in Mukuyu, a rural community approximately 70km from Lusaka.
The school was built by the local community who were determined to help their children get an education. Several years on the building was crumbling and unsafe, and unable to cope with a growing number of children.
What we did with your support:
- Built a new three-classroom block with an office and a strong room
- Built a latrine block to improve health and well-being of the children, encouraging more girls to stay in school as they grow up
- Improved the existing teacher’s houses to encourage more qualified teachers to come to teach at the school
- Trained 17 young, local people with new construction skills so they can find work and build themselves a brighter future
