cost and return
→ What does it cost?
→ Cost per child = $350
→ Cost per classroom = $35,000
→ Cost per school = $140,000 – $280,000
→ ROI – What is the return on investment?
The cost of a school varies depending on the number of classrooms, which can be from 4 to 8, depending on the number of students in the village, and the needs of the community. Each classroom accommodates about 50 students, and there are generally two shifts a day. The cost is to get the school built, but children will be in those classrooms for the next 25 or 30 years, which breaks down to about $14 per student per year – an amazing return on investment.
→ Raising funds
We are currently raising funds to build a school at Njele, a place with more than 2000 children, and access to education for only a few in tin rooms. The principal, teachers and community leaders are burdened by the plight of their children, pleading for a school, with hope for a better future. DONATE NOW
