Located near Shaba National Park, Kachiuru Primary School provides education to 173 children taught by 12 teachers. The area where the school is located is categorized as a hardship area because of insecurity and lack of social amenities.
Their most urgent need was a school administration block with a staff room to replace two small, makeshift wooden structures the headteacher shared with his staff. This new facility was a great incentive for the teachers and it went a long way in helping the school motivate the current staff and attract good quality staff in the future.
Gigi Cares committed all the funds needed to build and equip this new school administration block.
