Many young kids in Chinkonono Village, where Planting A Future is based, have to walk 6 to 8km to school. Every day.
As you can imagine. this has negatively affected their attendance and also their academic performance.
This scenario has driven the community to open a community pre-school where more than 80 kids can learn. The room they are using now is way too small and not fit for use as a classroom.
So at the moment the community is moulding bricks to build a bigger and better class block. They asked for help from Planting A Future by using our water pump to haul water from the river.
Of course we are more than willing to lend a helping hand. Planting A Future members now also help moulding bricks. So far 5.000 bricks have been moulded and the construction of a larger room will commence soon.
