Teacher Salaries

image114

The Project pays the salaries for 3 of the 7 teachers. Tuition is used to pay the balance. Due to parents' lack of funds, teachers are often paid late or remain with unpaid balances. The Project would like to provide additional support for teacher salaries so that all teachers receive full salaries.

Instructional Materials

  Prior to the summer of 2010, the school had virtually no resources. Teachers  had a minimal number of materials and students had none. The Project purchases teacher resources as well as student materials. The ratio is  currently one book to 7 students. The goal is to achieve a 1:1 ratio.
Additional funds are needed to reach this goal. 

Desks and Chairs

Due to increased enrollment, there is a desk shortage. Desks designed for 2 students are often shared by 4. In some of the primary classrooms, children must sit on the floor or share chairs.

  • teaching materials

  • gutters for the school to collect rainwater
