There were 3 male teachers and no female teachers at that time. The school started under a single building that was partitioned into the various classes. There was no latrine facility at the school when it was founded.Presently, the school comprises of three buildings that are built with cement bricks and roofed with zinc. The school buildings are painted in yellow at the top and brown beneath. There is a temporal fence made with local sticks at the from entrance of the school. There are dwelling houses around the school compound and each of those houses are shaded with huge mango trees. The environment of this school is tidy except for the two-latrine area at the school. The use of the latrine facilities without water at the school is leaving the area in an unpleasant situation. There is a large playing field at the back of the school building where the pupils and other youth in the community play football or do other sporting activities. The soil formation of the field and the school is encompassed with a sand which is quite comfortable for the children to play.

Sunga Primary School

Sierra Leone 530 beneficiaries

Sunga is 5 miles southwest of Tikonko Town in the Southern Province of Sierra Leone. The road between Tikonko and Sunga is a dirt trail, and difficult to navigate during the rainy season. The adult literacy level is extremely low with only 5 women and 10 men able to read or write. The main source of income is subsistence farming for both men and women, growing rice, cassava, bennie (sesame seed) beans, and yams. Sunga has a Christian church and a mosque (Islam) with Christians and Muslims living in harmony. Sunga has only one water pump which is often faulty, and the school has no well, so the swamp is the source of water. Sunga is 5 miles from the nearest health facility and hosts one of RHCI’s mobile outreach clinics. Sunga Primary School, grades 1-6, is a government-assisted school. Enrollment in September 2022 was 200 pupils as some pupils had not started attending due to agriculture work and the rainy season (At the end of the last school year, 300 pupils were attending). In addition to Sunga, enrollment includes pupils from the villages of Magbema, Mbawomahun, Gibina and Sogbehun. This school, established in 1999, is about 30-40 meters from the village and has only 2 paid teachers and one volunteer.
