When Rotarians visited the community in 2019, we saw firsthand, the suffering of the primary school pupil of Nsukwa community. Nsukwa is a community who are predominately farmers and the only primary school they have has been dilapidated for so many years, causing the pupils to learn under unsafe structures.
Some of the residents said they had written several letters to the government, drawing its attention to the deplorable state of facilities in the school but there had been no positive response. According to them, all the of the pupils who attend the school are indigent kids who are helpless to find an alternative, hence our resolve to seek partner from the rotary world to help kids and improve their learning conditions.
The facilities of a school impact overall learning process as well as the mental and physical growth of the students. These also affect the academic performance of the student to some extent. The physical and emotional health of students and teachers also depends on the facilities they are getting in school.
