How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our assistance over the past 25 years has taken Ngandu School from a very poor facility with dirt floors, no windows, no electricity, and pit toilets, to a beautiful facility with plastered and painted classrooms with cemented floors and glass windows, electricity, running water, drinking water, flush toilets, and a kitchen with a large cooker so all students are served hot porridge daily. There are over 5000 books in the library and a new computer lab. The Keeping Girls in School program brought equality to the school so that girls now perform just as well as boys. We have provided high school scholarships to students who subsequently graduated university and joined the work force. Ngandu School is now #1 out of 35 schools in the district.
