Kumi Bazaar is a state school on the edge of Kumi. Nearly one thousand children are crammed into seven classrooms and many sit on the floor because there are not enough desks. As usual, there are not enough resources and children often miss tests because they cannot afford the fees. There is also a shortage of teachers’ accommodation, with one classroom being used as living space.
Mission Direct have built two classrooms in 2017 and are likely to repeat that in 2018. We would also like to build a new teachers’ home to release a further classroom. Christine, the Head Teach, and all her staff are dedicated to the children, and the school is well run despite lack of resources.
