BACKGROUND

Established in 1991, Kang Yao Primary School has 116 students (59 boys, 57 girls) with four teachers (one man, three women). The school comprised two buildings: one concrete, functional; the other, wooden, severely dilapidated, needing replacement. Structurally unsound, with substandard timber columns and salvaged wood slats for walls, it suffered extreme temperatures and conditions, hindering students’ learning environment.

OUTCOMES

The new building at Kang Yao Primary School consists of 5 furnished classrooms and a teachers’ room. The classrooms offer a safe and more motivating learning environment for the students. 4 new toilets have also been built at Kang Yao Primary to improve sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses. Currently, the school employs 4 teachers and serves 116 students ranging from 5 to 12 years of age. With a quality learning environment parents from Kang Yao Village are encouraged to allow their children to pursue education and children are incentivised to continue and finish their primary education.
