Lushomo School re-build 2015
Second classrooms building in 2019
Lushomo Community School was set up in 2003 by the local Headman; half the children were orphans. In May 2012 the community asked Deana for help with rebuilding.
Upon completion the school was officially handed over to the Department of Education and the PTA.
His Exellency Chief Monze attended the ceremony.
We built 4 showers at the school for girls and provided pads and menstrual hygiene training to keep girls in school.
We built 3 classrooms in 2015. The school has been very oversubscribed, so we provided laptops, projectors and remote learning hot spots and training for the teachers.
In December 2018 we started building 3 new classrooms as a total of 1,000 children will attend the school.
A bore hole was drilled and a solar powered water pump installed to provide water for the showers, taps for hand washing and the garden.
The garden will teach the children both valuable life skills and income generating skills to help feed them and their families.
In January 2015 the walls from the old building collapsed.
The PTA borrowed a tent so lessons continued.
