Trench and wall built to protect classrooms from heavy rain and flooding.
In 2013 we gave funds to build a trench and wall to protect 4 classrooms from becoming water logged and muddy during the rainy season. This was a priority for the Head teacher as often when the heavy rains came children would have to leave their classrooms and their learning disrupted.
The rain could activate 'jiggers' (a small type of worm) which could burrow into the feet of those children not wearing shoes!
The Head teacher reported that the classrooms are now staying dry and that this project had been a great success.
