Working on building a new school in 2019

Children at Makonjemare primary school make every effort to do self – organised study while at the same time, assisting each other in the challenging learning journey because they lack enough child friendly physical facilities (classrooms and desks), teaching and learning materials.
Learn! Foundation and Wilde Ganzen are making every effort to make this possible in 2019.

Makonjemare primary school in Kilifi, Kenya is indeed, hard-to-reach school.  It located in rural part of Kilifi where roads become almost impassable during rainy season.  All the way and around the school are thorny bushes that beautify the landscape.   Because we have to deliver the promise to our donors, community and partners, LIBA staff and volunteers make every effort to get there.  Our motivation is, these children go though the worst every day to get an education therefore we endevour to use available means to get there (motorbike, walking for long distances, vehicle hire among others).   Learn Foundation is making things better for them by improving learning environment at the school and building the skills of teachers and students to become part of the global community.






Together with Learn! Foundation and Wilde Ganzen and Lifting the Barriers as their implementing partner on the ground, we will be building a new school at Makonjemare.  This will includes building six classrooms and six sanitation (toilet) facilities.  Additionally, we will complete a classroom that was started off by the parents and do the final touches in the multi-purpose hall like plastering and putting the metal grill on the doors and windows.

This is a big project with huge financial implication and without the cooperation from the two organizations mentioned above and Lifting the Barriers, this could not be achieved.
