BACKGROUND

Prior to the completion of this new building, the children of O’Romdeng were learning in a school made out of wooden poles, a zinc roof, and dirt floors. It offered hardly any protection from the extreme and harsh weather conditions. The zinc roof caused the temperature to increase substantially during the hot season and made a great deal of noise when it rained in the wet season, making the overall environment unsafe and difficult for the students to concentrate on their studies.

OUTCOMES

The new school offers education from primary level 1 to 6 and currently has a total of 120 students attending classes (aged 6 to 12) from O Romdeng village and three other neighbouring villages. The provision of a new school building underlines the importance of education to the children as well as the whole community. This will encourage them to attend school on a regular basis. We also expect a decline in dropout rates among primary level students. The newly built school building also caters to the increasing number of students in the coming academic year.
