Today I am sharing with you the details of the 2021 Community Vision Campaign: Housing for Teachers.

Each Spring for the last three years, we have come together to support Project Zawadi’s Model Schools program through a targeted campaign that is central to a school’s 5-year development plan. This year, the top priority is teacher housing.

This month, the first 6-in-1 Teacher Housing Block at Kambarage Primary School will be completed. But we have two more to build. That’s why the 2021 Community Vision Campaign is prioritizing the building of a 6-in-1 Teacher Housing Block at Sarawe Primary School which will provide on-site residence for six teachers and their families. The campaign goal is $60,000 of which $30,000 has already been pledged.

Why has the community prioritized teacher housing?

  • Housing was identified as a priority by the schools to attract and retain quality teachers.
  • Proximity to school increases time for instruction, lesson planning, and student support.
  • Quality teacher housing alleviates the hardship of working in a rural community.
  • Teacher housing is a key component of our holistic approach to school improvement.

The campaign goal is $60,000 for the 6-in-1 Teacher Housing Block at Sarawe Primary School – with each residence costing $10,000 to build. Three donors have already pledged $30,000 to kick off the financial campaign and the community will invest nearly 30,000 volunteer hours to bring this project to fruition. The 6-in-1 Teacher Housing Block will ensure that teachers and their families have suitable living spaces complete with kitchens, bathrooms, private family quarters, and access to reliable water.

DONATE ONLINE TODAY TO HELP THE SARAWE COMMUNITY BUILD THIS IMPORTANT SCHOOL RESOURCE!

Sincerely,
