Access to education is not always a given in the developing world, but part of the long-term goal in each FH partner community is accessible education. Child sponsors, parents, teachers and the children themselves all play a part in making these promising changes.
At a recent PTA meeting, parents decided to help with the construction of three new classrooms at one primary school and a block of latrines at another.
They agreed to provide semi-skilled labour, fetch water, and make or buy bricks for the entire school building project.
In another village, parents petitioned the government to send more teachers for their schools, and then they went to work constructing teachers’ houses for the three new out-of-town teachers.
