Project Info

Yelemiya wants to build a proper nursery school to solve a persistent problem involving early childhood education.

Community Problem: Yelemiya and surrounding villages have a lot of children under the age of five. 70 kids currently attend a makeshift nursery school shelter in Yelemiya made from sticks and thatch (located in the background of the banner photo above). During the rainy season, most students stop attending nursery school due to the subpar condition of the school. Yelemiya believes that a proper nursery school will attract more students and keep them in school year-round. Yelemiya also needs a proper nursery school to register for an early childhood nutriition program, operated by another NGO, that targets kids in nursery school.

Community Solution: Yelemiya will construct a small nursery school that will serve as a daycare and pre-school education facility. The school will provide a safe and educational environment for kids! After building the nursery school and stocking it with materials like a blackboard, chalk and books, community members will hire a teacher and pay that teacher with contributions provided by parents of children in attendance. The community has raised 10% of the project cost in cash (about $200) and will contribute labor, cement, bricks and sand to make it happen!

Partners: World Connect & National Peace Corps Association
