overview

RISE school at Kuquema

The school at Kuquema is just outside of Kunhinga, and is a beautiful 8 classroom school in a very remote area where there was no school. Funded by BP Oil and Partners, BP officials attended the dedication in February 2013 and were delighted. The local government provided desks, chalkboards and hired 16 teachers. Teachers shared their gratitude and excitement at being able to teach in large, new classrooms, and that it impacts them and the students, creating an atmosphere that facilitates learning.

There is a school feeding program, which is government funded and implemented by a separate organization, and will encourage even more students to attend. Lack of water in the area created challenges, but the government has recently drilled a well near the school site.
