Info about the Datcha School Construction

The village of Datch in the Plateaux Region of Togo has a severe school-overcrowding problem. Its secondary school was designed with only six classrooms but now plays host to over one thousand students. Temporary structures have beem erected but they are no match for the Togolese rainy season or the brutal midday heat. The parent- teacher association has taken on the goal of constructing two buildings to permanently house six new classrooms. Without outside assistance, the community has managed to nearly complete construction on the first new building. This project will construct a second new building with three classrooms and administrative offices. It will greatly ameliorate the learning environment by lowering class sizes, allowing class to meet during bad weather and letting students study indoors. The current student to permanent classroom ratio is 167 students per classroom. This ration will fall to 84 students per classroom with the completion of the two new school buildings. The school staff already includes an adequate number of teachers to teach in the new classroom. The village has raised money for one of the new buildings and will be donating all of the labor and locally available resources (gravel, water, sand etc), much of the concrete, as well as covering any unforeseen costs, for the second building. The greatest costs of this project are the crude construction materioals: concrete, sheet metal and rafters. The beneficiares of this project are the 1,056 students of the Datcha Junior High School as well as the village and the other communities served by the school.
