School

St Mark's Primary School has a population of 215 pupils, of whom 150 are orphans. We started the school in August 2011 in a makeshift tent in response to an overwhelming number of orphan children who were neglected and vulnerable to child abuse and had no access to education. Since then we have built four classrooms, two of these are of proper construction and are being used by our Year 5 and 6 children. The other two classrooms are semi-permanent. However, space is limited and we desperately need four more classrooms. The school is run by 12 teachers who work on temporary basis and it is humbling to see their dedication to the cause regardless of their low income, which can hardly meet their basic needs . Recently we were humbled by and grateful to Worth School in the UK, the Headmaster Stuart McPherson, the staff and management board for reaching out with their heart and soul to bless our school with laptops. In addition one family from Worth School helped us set up an internet connection and a network for the laptops. These have injected a new breath of life into our school and we are planning to provide a computer/internet facility for the local community also. The school is achieving excellent results and has tremendously impacted the Kitabisi community.
