THE THIRD PROJECT: GIRLS SECONDARY SCHOOL IN ILULU (March 2009)

This girls school has 240 students.


The school lacks almost everything, such as a canteen, tables, chairs, beds, schoolbooks, etc. The students have to sit on the floor for studying and eating. Internetcontact would mean a giant step forward for better education. Ukengee looks for funds to realize this project, because this type of school is very important for emancipation of women.


Headmistress Sarah hopes to fill this class with computers. The energycompagny Songaz promised the school contact with the electricity network...
