What It Costs
By donating to this project, you will provide support to help the primary schools. It costs RIPPLE Africa an ongoing monthly sum to support these six primary schools. Other projects are one-off capital costs, such as building a new classroom block, or providing new desks.


FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT
Why Is It So Important?
RIPPLE Africa is supporting six local primary schools, has built several classroom blocks, and pays the salaries of 15 trainee teachers. Most of our work is to reduce class sizes – which can be over 100 pupils in each class – and provide a better learning environment for the children. Our overall aim is to increase the number of children who achieve good results in their exams and proceed to secondary school.
