“I came to this school in 2006,” says Rodgers Duwa, head teacher at one of Mposa’s schools. “Life was tough then.”
Just three teachers were responsible for 719 students, with two classrooms and no toilets. The school was badly in need of help, but conflicts between local leaders had stalled any improvements.
In 2011 World Vision offered to help, provided the community would collaborate. Rodgers organized a meeting where the stakeholders reconciled their differences, and finally work began.
“The school now has a total of eight classes, and two teachers’ houses,” Rodgers says proudly. Plus, 14 toilets are improving sanitation.
With training for the 19 teachers, a school management committee and parent-teacher association, children at this school are now benefitting from a much better learning experience.
Help a child realize their full potential. Give the gift of education.
