Lukanga North Nursary school construction

Status: Not started yet
Time needed: 
Two weeks or more
Step: 
2

Low levels of literacy have haunted this neighbourhood, as a result of parents lacking income to support their children. The land and water resources are abundant but people do not have the knowhow skills and input resources for them to effectively engage in agriculture which happens to be the only environmental friendly and sustainable income generating activity than charcoal burning as most of the trees have been used for charcoal and fire wood. The people of this neighbourhood know that agriculture can work for them but means of engaging in the practice are limited.
Recently we received a donation of school books from TWAM and 4 school packs as you can see on the picture
We are call on all well wishers and the donor community to help us construct a two block school and a toilet block
