I Help bringing children back to schools- Investing in future
There are 34 primary schools in Pangani District with a total number of students amounting 11,525 (boys 5,789 and girls 5,736).The primary schools suffer from poor infrastructure such as lack of toilets, WASH facilities, teacher offices (39 primary school teachers are working without any office space at the moment) and dripping roofs.
Out of 34 primary schools in Pangani District, only 3 have proper toilet facilities, 4 schools have water and 3 schools have access to electricity. On average, there are 134 children in one classroom, making it almost impossible for them to concentrate and achieve their maximum potential. Most of the children drop out before reaching the secondary school.
Moreover, it is equally important to provide teachers with proper trainings – 67% of children regularly fail their English language exams. Islamic Help has comprehensive plans for the capacity building of teachers, particularly in English and IT.
Islamic Help Education project helps to rebuild the existing schools by:
1. Teacher Trainings particularly on teaching English language
2. Evening Tuition Centers
3. Building Toilets and WASH facilities
2. Repairing roof and floor
3. Installing Solar Panels for boarding students
4. Rain/Roof water harvesting and Storage
5. Building schools garden/ farms
6. Providing school stationary and mosquitoes nets for all the students
Islamic Help renovated the Mwembeni primary school (230 students) in Pangani, and we are looking for donors to help re-build other schools in the district.
