New School blocks have been built in three communities. In one of the schools, lessons were held outdoors under sheds made of palm fronds, leading to disruption in teaching and learning with the slightest rain. They now have a new school building, a computer lab and a head teacher’s office.
There is also a canteen to make food available to the children whiles in School. An extra block has been built for the Junior high school to cater for the educational need of the growing community beyond primary School.
Secondary education is highly valued by parents but beyond the means of many. The workers decided to invest in their children’s futures and now annually award around 20 secondary school and university scholarships to workers’ children on merit.
