One of the problems of education is that there is a high drop-out rate among children. This can have several causes. Think of hygiene, no food at school, no good sanitary facilities and no recreational opportunities.
- The school is therefore equipped with toilets with separate areas for girls, so that the girls can change themselves when they have their periods. These areas must also be provided with wastebaskets.
- Running water is a must. A solar pump has been drilled so that clean and safe drinking water is always available.
- The school is equipped with solar panels. This means that the children can also go to school in the evening to read and learn.
- The school is equipped with recreational facilities, such as: football field, netball field and other sports facilities.
The school currently operates with two shifts. This means that twice as many students can receive education. There are currently 930 students using the school. Meanwhile, the second phase of Project Bolera has begun. We are currently collecting for 50,000 new building blocks and an expansion of the school.
