The community in which the Peace Corps Volunteer lives currently has inadequate classrooms for the students in the Primary and Junior High School (JHS). Many students are learning in a half finished building filled with dust and sand while others are located in an open structure without protection from wind or rain. The community has worked closely with the JHS and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) to create a project to build an entirely new JHS block in order to shuffle the classrooms around to provide adequate learning spaces to all of the students in the community. It is currently at the foundation stage. The community has expressed increasing interest in finishing the project and has come together to form a grant application and budget as part of their plan to finish the JHS block. Completion of the school building will include installing electricity, doors, windows, floors, plastering the walls, and painting. The community has come together to pledge bags of cement, labor, and various other vital pieces of equipment needed to work on the project. Finishing the school building will finally allow each and every student in the JHS and Primary to have access to a prime learning environment, thereby enhancing the learning experience and allowing the children to flourish academically.
