Construction of a classroom in the primary school



At Marumba, there are presently only four classrooms. The pupils of one class used to learn sitting under the trees, with the direct consequence of an important lack of children’s motivation in attending courses and – on medium term – to see the number of villagers who cannot read and write increasing.

The construction a fifth classroom has started already and it will be completed by the end of March 2016

It will welcome 45 to 60 pupils.

The amount of 7,350 €, which includes cement, building material and labor, has been awarded to the local project officer who will monitor the classroom implementation, make the payment according to the work progress and assure a detailed follow-up.

The local community participates in providing sand and stones.
