Description

The project '?Bring 'out-of-school? children to school?? is underway promoting education to less privileged children and orphans. It looks to make education accessible by using photos to raise funds for building classrooms, library and computer lab to allow learning/teaching and IT to take place. The population of children in the surrounding area grew significantly in 2016- 2017. This has led to higher imbalance in student to classrooms ratio. By bringing out-of-school children to school, we hope to reduce involuntary marriages, illiteracy prevalence, child prostitution, drug abuse, early marriages/pregnancies, joblessness and social crimes down by 60% by 2023 and make communities self sustainable and sufficient by 2030. Between January-March 2018 we have lost 42 students into streets due to lack of enough classrooms/learning material (library, computer lab) in 2015-2017 that is why we need volunteers/interns helping hands! We need to bring balance and stop. You will take photos, make videos and audios
