In 2020 the construction and renovation of the Siamatika school started, this school is located in the same area 8km away from the Liberi school. Besides a building with two additional classrooms, all classrooms and offices were renovated. New toilet blocks have been installed. The school is equipped with electricity, and there is water for the children. This project has been realized through contributions from several donors, and one-third was financed by Wilde Ganzen. We are proud of the change the school has received. Also the change regarding the involvement in the community is very noticeable. Almost all parents now send their children to school and 700 children attend this school. With the construction of more classrooms there will be even more higher grades at the school.
The following year we continued with this project. With the help of Wilde Ganzen we were able to build a pre-school. The school is also equipped with a nice playground. All classes have school furniture and also school books. The school is fenced so that animals cannot enter the premises and the school remains neat and clean.
As a token of involvement, the community itself has built two teacher’s houses. But the community is also involved (in both projects, by the way), by keeping the area clean, building shaded areas, planting grass, etc.
Community involvement has increased more and more with the arrival of the Liberi foundation. Both changes have resulted in a great improvement in the quality of education in this community. But not only the community, also the local government helps, for example by providing the Siamatika school with more teachers. From now on Siamatika school can call itself the best school of Siavonga.
That is fantastic!
