Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Achieve in Africa's current goal is to provide Olasiti village its first secondary school and to expand the school each year to accommodate new students. Achieve in Africa opened the school in January 2012 to the first 200 students. In January 2013, another 400 arrived. Each year, additional classrooms and desks need to be constructed for the growing school.

To meet this need, Achieve in Africa has partnered with the local village government to complete the school. For every classroom that Achieve in Africa constructs, the government adds the roof. Additionally, the government has assisted with constructing several classrooms and bathrooms for the school. Achieve in Africa has also expanded its Board of Directors from four members to eight members and split the board into committees in order to cover more ground.

Achieve in Africa has a field coordinator, Alex, who is a local and well-respected member of the village. Alex provides oversight of the project and coordinates with our female contractor, Rose, who manages the workers who construct the school's classrooms and desks. Through its contacts on the ground and partnerships with the government, Achieve in Africa has a strong platform for making a sustained difference in the community.

Olasiti Secondary School first opened in January 2012 to 200 students. In January 2013, another 400 students arrived. Of the 600 students attending the school, approximately 50% are female. Eventually, the school will be able to accommodate grades 7-12.
