Thousands of children, in the Bie Province, long for a school. In the village of Trumba, there are 233 students learning in makeshift classrooms and under trees, with another 300 children out the school system because there are no classrooms. Full funding for 8 classrooms was reached in May, the funds were wired and construction began. Thanks to all who donated to give kids in Trumba a new school in which to learn – they are excited!
The local Administration has provided new desks and chalkboards, and is grateful for our partnership. The dedication ceremony and celebration took place on April 1st, 2016, with many in attendance.
A beautiful clinic sits near the school and was dedicated and opened on November 10, 2015. There is also a well near the school, which will supply clean water to both the school and clinic.
