“Before Build Africa came our school was not attractive because we had no good classrooms and were studying in improvised classrooms. We studied under trees and did not have desks to sit and write on. Those from good families would carry seats from home every morning to sit on in class.

“The school had arranged food rations, but could only give it to children in the upper classes. Most of the other pupils went hungry for the day.

“Now I have seen all the changes come to our school. We don’t have to worry when it starts raining because the classes are good and we have enough desks. We also have gardens to grow food and pupils are happy to be kept at school as they know they will be fed. Also, the afternoons are fun and the young ones play games with the teachers!

“I used to be 13th in my class but now I am 8th after the exams. I have had more time to read new textbooks and the teachers are now more friendly with us. My favourite teachers is Mrs Adong. I want to stay in school and be a teacher, too.”

In rural areas children have limited access to books, struggle in overcrowded classes and get no support from illiterate parents. Build Africa is changing the story...

We know that supporting girls not only empowers them to reach their potential, it can pull entire families out of poverty and help fragile communities build a brighter, stronger future. #InternationalWomensDay http://ow.ly/juNM309I1Q9
