In our last field update we reported that our first batch of locally-produced desks and chairs had been completed and delivered to Olasiti Secondary School. These desks allowed students to have their own space to learn and do schoolwork and meant that they no longer have to sit on old paint buckets and bricks in class. However that first batch of desks and chairs was only the beginning.
We are happy to announce that our second batch of desks has been completed. The 100 desks produced in the village have been brought to the school and now provide two additional classrooms with seating and workspace.
At the cost of $44 each desk allows a child to have their own space to complete their work and develop as a student. Thank you to everyone who has supported this project and Achieve in Africa. Please consider donating or connecting with AIA to help us furnish the rest of the five existing classrooms and the additional classrooms that we plan to build in the future.
