Emmanuel Community Primary School is set up to take care of children in poverty, who do not, or cannot attend government schools. The school charges no fees. Here the students are much more disciplined. The teachers seem to be quite young, and care about the children more. When we teach the children using the tabletPCs, some of the teachers sit at the back, listening attentively. Boys and girls work together enthusiastically.
The school has a computer room, with a number of old computers bought with donations. Many of them have broken down. We cleaned and fixed some of them, and donated 3 more laptops. We set up a proper network, and installed a library of e-books and other learning resources. The school director, a pastor, seemed quite happy about it all. They have already a plan to build a high school next door.
We have actually known the school for several years, when it was under different management and it went through a period of uncertainty. The school looks quite promising now and we are planning to come back.
