About the School
There are over 150 students on the register at Kadunguni Primary School and much the same as those at neighbouring Kundeni, they’re a happy bunch of youngsters, despite the challenge of having only a few wooden huts for classrooms.
The school has several students in their late teens and early 20s and are attending for the first time, as many of them were put to work on the land by their families. They are now taking full advantage of the opportunities an education can offer them and are very excited about their future.
The school is located in a remote area in the district of Bore, around an hours walk through the bush from Kundeni Primary School.
What We’ve Done so Far
During a visit by our Trustee, Ru Hartwell at the end of 2016, he made an enormous difference to the welfare of the students by providing the classrooms with a set of plastic chairs. This remarkable change lifted everyone off the mud floor and that simple act has been a considerable help to everyone’s mental health and well being. The teachers and students can now study in a more organised and clean environment. The effects of this dramatic improvement certainly show in their faces and the teachers are delighted too, as attitudes towards learning are also getting better.
We really are champing at the bit to build a set of solid, safely constructed classrooms and thank you in advance of any funding you can spare to set this wish in motion.
What We Can Do With Your Help
We only need to look at the incredibly positive changes that have occurred as a result of our assistance at Kundeni Primary School to know what is very likely to happen here:
The classrooms could be constructed in a few months and once they are up and ready, we’ll ensure the children have access to:
- exercise and text books
- pens, pencils and paper
- a library of children’s books in Swahili and English
- educational wall charts and other visual aids for learning
- some basic sports equipment so they can enjoy playing games
- bedrolls to make sleeping more comfortable and to protect their clothing
