The school now teaches and feeds over 320 children daily with this number set to increase next year as the school expands to include year 9 provision. Each year group now has its own classroom and teacher meaning that they can attend school for a whole day and as a result of this and other measures, the education standard has risen dramatically in the last few years.
The children are determined and committed to getting the very most out of their education as possible and work extremely hard. They are all completely aware that the only way to escape the poverty trap that most of their fellow countrymen are in is to become better educated and skilled in order to get better paid employment. In this way, they are able to support themselves and their families which ultimately will pave the way to long term aid no longer being required by this extremely poor country. Nayamba is a good news story and shows everyone that they can play a part in making a difference to the lives of children who have the same hopes and dreams as their own children and just need a bit of help to make it possible.
Nayamba is completely funded from donations and receives no Government support at all. Without the generous support of so many people, the school could not continue and the children in the area would be denied any access to education.
