Adopt a School Programme

supporting the primary and basic education within Moba's communities and its neighbouring villages

The education project aims to improve access, quality and achievement of the primary educational cycle, equitable for girls and boys and to enhance basic literacy in the community. The project strives to lay the foundations of the irreversible capability for writing and reading in Mobas’ villages, in order to ensure long-term permanent literacy and allow improvements to quality of life and opportunities for further education and development. Since 1991, no budget allocation has been provided, resulting in a rundown school building, without supplies and materials. Library, books, learning and resources manuals have never been available in the area. Due to difficult means of transport for teachers, who live in the mainland, they are often absent. Lack of toilets and potable water leaves children in a dirty and unsafe environment. The educational assessment needs reveal that children are not fully and in equity enrolled in school due to lack of access, household duties and child labour involved in farming and fishing. Lack of trained teachers inhibits good quality of education and the capacity management of the already formed “Parents Teachers Association” has been assessed as poor and inefficient. It notes that the majority of the population is illiterate, with an illiteracy rate of 59% for women and 51% for men respectively. This project will take a cooperative and efficient approach to providing an adequately functioning primary school and adult literacy courses. The aim is to create a healthy and conducive learning environment, in the target communities by sensitising and incorporating all the communities and their chief the Baale, mobilising and training the school community, empowering and training the Parents Teacher Association (PTA). Underlying issues will be delivered in terms of hygiene practices and gender awareness.
