AN INTRODUCTION

Cedar Primary School was founded in 1995 and now serves over 400 hundred pupils within a five-mile radius. Because of its physical state and poor access roads the school struggles to attract high-calibre teachers and so the pupils’ grades are poor. There is a lack of essential facilities, and there is poor sanitation.

WHAT HAVE WE DONE?

Working with CDF (Community Development Fund), we have successfully renovated one of the classroom blocks with water harvesting, built boys and girls toilets, renovated and stocked a library room, provided 100’s of school desks, paid and supported a pupil through his teacher training at university and created a school lunch programme, providing a hot meal to over 400 students every day for the last two years. 

WHAT’S THE PLAN?

Working with other charity partners, we aim to complete the refurbishment of the second classroom block plus water harvesting. Plus, we will continue to support the school through the provision of school lunches, books and desks.
