Funding

USD200,000

Programme

 BNTF 7

Overview

The main challenges with the facility is inadequate space to accommodate the students, and also some design issues which reduced the quality of the facility as a learning institution.  Classrooms are partitioned by chalkboards which causes major disturbance. Additional, there is inadequate ventilation and poor lighting, especially when it rains.

Objective

The sub-project will rehabilitate and expand the existing building to accommodate 100 students.

Benefits

  • learning environment transformed into one that is more child friendly;
  • The increase in space will provide the opportunity for other students in that community who could not be accommodated at that school to now gain entry into a school that is closer to home; and
  • enhancements in the sanitary facilities as well as area for food preparation will facilitate health care and hygiene within the school.
