A Rural Education Success Story

The school relies entirely on the generosity, not of western donors or international organisations, but of the community in which they live to survive. They have a small plot by the railway line where they grow vegetables to supplement the maize, beans and rice donated by the community. Volunteer teachers are compensated by receiving three meals from the school, and two ladies and a gentleman who have had children go through the school, volunteer to work as heads of house and cooks. Graduating students donate their uniforms to the incoming class and after graduation some students and their families continue to receive counselling from the school, particularly those living with HIV/Aids.
