Project Info

Jemus wants to build a proper nursery school to solve a persistent problem involving early childhood education. The current nursery school (above) is small, dark, and temporary.

Community Problem: Parents in Jemus Village work long days on remote farms, making it difficult for them to supervise and educate their young children. Consequently, children receive very little formal education before the age of five.

Community Solution: Jemus 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 5% of the project cost in cash (about $100) and will contribute labor, cement, bricks and sand to make it happen!

Partners: National Peace Corps Association

Outcome: a proper nursery school for the village

Field Updates
On Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Jemus Village completed the school and held a ceremony to mark the occasion. Festivities included singing, dancing, and speeches. Field officers Myson Jambo and Macford Chinonga were in attendance. Many children will receive early childhood education in preparation for primary school. The new school is a vast improvement over the dark, mud and thatch structure previously used by the village for nursery education.
