“The thing that makes me get up every morning and do all the work I'm doing is the way that children and their parents benefit from our work. I feel blessed to see happy children who really enjoy all the services we provide and the way the school is owned by the community.”
Yohana Chuma, Head Teacher and School Manager

“I’ve become an old man, I don’t have any strength to chase cows here and there. But education, education does not age. Even now I advise my fellow parents that education is not something to avoid. Those who may think differently, I encourage them to prioritise education.
It’s the foundation of development… education.”
