2 of the schools have 6 classrooms and each of the schools can accommodate up to 270 students. The 6 other constructed schools have 9 classrooms and can up to 405 pupils. The local beneficiaries were delighted with the new constructions because for the most part the schools were functioning in very precarious conditions under tents or inside wooden huts.
The students present at the inaugurations demonstrated an immense pride in their new securely built classrooms which meet current standards.
