Projects in Need
Durato Dela is a very rural school located in the hills of Bensa, Ethiopia. Most of the children in this school are sons and daughters of farmers and cattle herders. This school is comprised of 857 girls and 1023 boys, nearly 2000 students.
Kapululuka Primary School is in a rural area outside of Lilongwe, Malawi and currently has NO clean water source. The school has an enrollment of 799 students and only 7 teachers. Surrounding the school is an estimated population of 3,995 people.
Plans: Rainwater Catchment, VIP Latrines, Hand-Washing Stations and Hygiene/Sanitation Training. The Ebukanga Secondary students must report to school by 8AM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but many arrive earlier to study. On the remaining week days, normal classes start at 7AM. Lunch is from 1-2PM, and afternoon classes go until 4:30PM. Most students come from very poor households who cannot afford school fees. To help, school administration decided to accept any form of payment: trees for firewood, beans, maize, and chickens are common items given to the school. Local political leaders have also invested as much as they can; there is a Constituency Development Fund (CDF) that has paid for painting classrooms and building a dining hall. A member of the Kenyan Parliament is also helping by supplementing children’s school fees, which in turn helps pay the teachers’ salaries. This same member of parliament has donated 10 desktop computers so that students can learn basic skills. Principal Jeremiah Andayi told us that his goal is “not to force every students to get grade A by the end of their learning, but to grant every needy child a chance to go through the education system and change their destiny for the better.” However, there is a severe water shortage that impedes this goal.
