BACKGROUND

Established in 1974, Non Yang Primary School had two school buildings, both constructed from wood with zinc roofs, and catered to 117 students (61 girls, 56 boys) aged 6 to 11. Both buildings were made out of substandard materials that had come into a state of disrepair over the years. The wooden walls and beams were infested with termites; the whole building was rotting and could have collapsed without warning. Additionally, there were large gaps in the walls that protected against neither the rain, nor the noise from other classrooms. The buildings were not only unsafe for teachers and students, but also resulted in a chaotic learning environment in which students could not reach their full potential. Both buildings were in need of urgent replacement.

OUTCOMES

In an effort to address this problem, we constructed one new school building with five fully-furnished classrooms and one teachers’ room, to replace the rotten wooden buildings. These classrooms offer a safer and more motivating learning environment for the students. The construction of the new building emphasisesthe importance of education to the whole village and other surrounding communities and provides an incentive for the children to continue and complete their primary level education. The project also included four new toilets, which will improve sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses.
