Project Info

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

Community Problem: Parents in Chiyuni 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: Chiyuni 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 Saturday, January 12, 2019, Chiyuni gathered with Field Officer Wedson Kondowe to open the nursery school. Guests of honor included a local counselor (politician) and the Primary Education Advisor from the Ministry of Education. The chief of Chiyuni was very happy, as this was the first development project in his area in recent memory. The nursery school will help not only Chiyuni Village, but also neighboring communities. The school just opened and already has an enrollment of over 80 learners. A representative from NGO Feed the Children committed to providing flour for children attending the nursery school to eat porridge when school is in session. At the ceremony, people danced and expressed their joy that the nursery school will help prepare kids for primary education.
