From our fundraising page:
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The community of Tsipasi does not have a formal education system of any kind. This is impacting all children in the village as they are not within walking distance to another school. To provide minimal education a local community member is hosting the children for very basic educational gatherings.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will establish a permanent school building and grounds, construct and improve surrounding facilities to be used for the school and provide training and staffing of teachers. We will also work to appoint a formal Head Master (Principal) who will be responsible for implementing the curriculum, overseeing the standardization of the educational structure and developing student learning and growth. When fully mature, this project will also serve the local school children one meal per day
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will have dramatic long term effects for not only this community, but also surrounding communities that do not have access to education. This is a very important endeavor as we seek to implement an educational system for these communities and increase the level of education both in the short and long term. By providing education these children will be able to continue on to secondary education and enter the workforce to provide a sustainable living for their future families.
