Hey everyone – this is Brendan, Achieve in Africa’s President. It’s been three years since I co-founded AIA. Over that time, we’ve been able to raise $67,500 for our past projects and worked to build our organizational capacity to take on large projects. By rebuilding two classrooms and renovating seven more at the Olasiti Primary School, we’ve improved the learning environment for over 100 students and improved the student-teacher ratio and decreased the number of students per classroom by twelve. Not only do the 100 students benefit from the new classrooms, but so do their peers in other classrooms that are now smaller in size.
Here’s a video of the primary school teachers talking about the work that AIA has done.
AIA is currently working to provide enough secondary school classrooms and desks to accommodate a new grade level of students each year. So far, we have worked with the village government and partners to build five classrooms and ten bathrooms, enough to accommodate the first grade level of students.
While we’ve been incredibly successful so far, we have so much more to do. To help us build more classrooms for our secondary school, we need your support. Here are some ways to help:
