Nalutanda School building 2021
This is the twelth school we are helping to rebuild, and is set in a rural area 38 miles west of Monze town. It has 1,257 children from 18 villages. This school was built entirely by the local community however it did not have enough classrooms. We drilled a bore hole and installed a pump to provide water for drinking, hygiene and brick making. Building the basic 3 classrooms was completed in December 2021, just in time as the school was cut off by exceptionally heavy rains which damaged crops and homes. In 2023 we visited Nalutanda and at the request of the community completed building a teacher's house. The school still needs more toilets and boarding accomodation.
In 2023 we have raised funds for permaculture gardening training, a fence to protect vegetables from wandering cattle, and a water tank to provide water for the garden.
We have provided curriculum books and and installed a Raspberry Pi remote learning centre
