The Ivor Leigh Memorial School in Kaningo has about 300 students, but the building is made of corrugated iron and tarpaulin and is unusable in the rainy season. We want to build a permanent structure with proper classrooms and a kitchen to provide the kids with food during the school day.
It ran from 10:00 AM, 6 December 2010 to 10:00 AM, 4 January 2011

The people of Kaningo are trying to rebuild their community after the ravages of the civil war. The existing school building is a temporary structure of plastic sheeting, woven panels and corrugated iron which is unusable during the rainy season, and has no security, so nothing can be left there overnight. Also, a lot of the kids attending the school, many of whom are orphans, have no food at all during their school day.
Our project aims to build a permanent structure for the school, including a kitchen, which will also be used as a community centre, providing space for initiatives such as adult literacy classes, adult education, vocational training and craft workshops. The centre will also be used for clinic sessions for vaccination programmes, as an information and communications centre and for local events such as a savings club.
