Masse-Kope School Construction

Info about the Masse-Kope School Construction
The primary school in the village of Masse-Kope has a severe overcrowding problem. The primary school plays host to over 600 students but has only six classrooms. The Parent-Teacher Association started construction of three additional classrooms, but with the $1200 they were able to raise, has only been able to construct the walls. Assistance is needed in order to add the roof and doors, as well as to purchase desks, which are currently shared by two or three pupils at a time. In addition to the walls they have already constructed, the community will be donating labor and local resources for the remainder of the construction. The educational benefits that can be provided to these 600 students in a less crowded learning environment are self-evident.
