VSO Project: Kokoma School, Mchinji
A grant of £250 was awarded to Kokoma School for the improvements to equipment for the classrooms. The grant was used to pay for construction of 12 desks for Standard 6 pupils and 2 tables and chairs for the Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher.
“Before the new desks were built the students were sitting on the ground under trees . Now they are studying in the conducive environment and are going to be motivated in their classes. If the pupils are going to be motivated the outcome result of that are pupils dropped out will be lower, improving of grades are going to be seen, adding the rate of pupils who will be able to read and comprehend.“
