There is overwhelming need for additional classrooms and other infrastructure such as labs, libraries, dormitories, etc. at schools across East Africa. In many schools, lack of infrastructure causes class sizes to reach 75-100 students per teacher in rooms that are small, badly ventilated, and often unsafe. With such limited capacity, it is especially difficult for schools to offer needed services such as tutoring or extra-curricular skills for their students.
Global Partners responds to the infrastructure and educational development needs of primary and secondary schools in poor, rural areas across East Africa. Examples of completed infrastructure projects include the construction of dormitories, teacher housing, classrooms, laboratories, and water systems as well as assistance with purchasing school supplies and equipment.
