The new, permanent, school that we’re building in Lusenda will provide some badly needed additional classroom space – solely for the secondary education of Congolese and Burundian students. It will be a vast improvement on the current temporary or derelict schools.
We will largely follow the design of the primary schools that we construct on the South Kivu Plateau – six classrooms, a head teacher’s office a toilet block (with separate cubicles for girls.) and of course proper classroom furniture.
One difference in the school design is turning what would normally be a meeting room into a youth centre. This will provide a meeting space, books and, potentially, computers.
