 Due to lack of resources and inadequate school facilities, both the school as well as the local community is facing enormous challenges. Partially completed classroom buildings and shortage learning materials are creating an effective and difficult learning environment.

Due to inconsistent funding there are only 3 fully completed classrooms. The remaining 9 classrooms are never finished still with no concrete floors, walls, proper windows or doors.

Funding is also required to furnish the classrooms with sufficient student desks to reduce cramming. The proposal also includes provisioning of learning materials including reference books and lab supplies aimed at improving the poor quality of education in the school.

Lack of resources and the effects of poverty on teaching and learning become more visible in the classrooms. Most classrooms are supplied with one small chalkboard (the only classroom display) that makes teaching difficult when time is spent to erase and write notes. Some classrooms have 2 boards to accommodate a separate group.

The dirt floors, open walls and windows, overcrowded rooms and broken chairs and tables are hampering educational progress. These also presents a major health risk; affecting the wellbeing of students and teachers.

In order to resolve some of the educational challenges of the school external assistance in improving the classroom buildings, furnishing rooms with desks, provisioning of suitable textbooks, adequate science lab supplies, and other essential resources is paramount important.
