Prior to construction there was a make shift school consisting of 3 concrete blocks with fencing around it and a roof. There were no tables or chairs, just a black board and a very committed teacher. Initially 20 children enrolled for classes, varying in ages from 2 - 14.
None of them had received any schooling up until this point. It grew to 60 children taking classes in increadably cramped conditions with lots more children on the waiting list. By the time we opened our doors over 200 children were in attendance, a number which is growing all the time.
