Ziga Primary School
Total donations: $173,940 | Partnership: Since 2010
When we first discovered Ziga Primary School some of the classrooms had been condemned, and students were studying in buildings without roofs.
Since then, we have built new classrooms, a library & media center, a fence around the perimeter of the school, a playground, a storage facility, and new lavatories. We’ve also drilled a borehole to provide the school and village with fresh water.
And to further support instruction in the classroom, we’ve purchased desks and chairs, teacher resource materials and ensured that each class has all the necessary books for the curriculum.
Once the school had a reliable supply of water we were able to plant fruit trees and vegetable plants establishing a fruit orchard and a vegetable garden. This enhanced the children’s farming and agricultural syllabus and also assists the school by generating income from the sale of the produce.
