To raise $45000 to refurbish the school.
We need to refurbish three dilapidated classrooms, the children need a boat to get to school and we need to employ and pay three teachers. We also need to fix the well so there can be water, and refurbish the lavatories. Finally, to protect all the investment, we will need to build a wall around the school.
I visited the school for the first time while exploring Benin. I was impressed by the enthusiasm of kids, the dedication of teaching staff and willingness of the villagers to support the school and the kids. The families in the village are farmers and fishermen and they cannot support the school on their own. They have tried in the past to pay the teachers, but unfortunately that was not sustainable.
