CHAISA PRIMARY SCHOOL (grades pre-k to 7th)

Chaisa school is in Northen province kasama district, in a rural area where most families are “subsistence farmers” surviving off the land.  The school has 305 students and covers preschool to grade 7. The students walk up to several kilometers each day to go to school.

This school like must in the area lack’s sufficient classroom space for concurrent teaching, and thus many classes meet outside or are over-crowded.  Of course during the long rainy season this is a challenge to hold classes.  These teachers and students are enthusiastic for education and are eager to have a sibling school to share their joy’s of learning with.
