Support from Edirisa UK has dramatically improved the educational standards and facilities at our partner primary schools.
Despite the government’s initiative to provide free education for all, in reality schools often demand a supplement to continue to run, as well as all pupils being required to provide their own scholastic materials and uniforms. Government school class sizes are often in the region of 100 pupils, restricting the potential of pupils to learn and reach their potential.
Edirisa UK funds the building and renovation of the classroom blocks at a number of Primary Schools ensuring a better working environment for the teachers and children. We also provide desks and necessary school equipment and scolastic materials taken for granted in the developed world – pens, pencils, paper, maths equipment and arts and craft materials.
Our volunteers assist teachers wherever possible providing tuition in English and Maths to small groups, running creative workshops, sports activities and more.
