Info about the Primary School Grounds Improvement

Our project aims to improve the school grounds of a primary school in Burkina Faso, in three parts. First, we will construct a latrine for the school’s seven teaching and administrative staff members, who currently must use the neighbors’ facilities or return home during class breaks. Additionally, we will build a kitchen to prepare student lunches. These lunches will be prepared by the association of student mothers and provided at minimal cost to interested students. Finally, we will start a school garden. The garden will include a well with walls built up and a cover for the students’ safety. The students will tend to the garden, whose produce will include moringa, mangoes, oranges, papayas, cabbage, onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. This product will be used to improve the nutritional quality of the school lunches. The garden will also serve as an easily-accessible setting for plant biology and nutrition lessons.
