Our main goal has been to establish a school and safe environment, that will offer education to local pre-primary and primary children from the poorer villages, secondary level and vocational training to Iringa youth and adults. The primary section is up and running, serving over 70 pupils and the vocational training centre opens its doors in July 2016. At present, our goal is to consolidate these services at our Peace Flame School site in Nduli, which requires further fundraising and building work.
The CCDO expects to increase its capacity with both the provision of services and skills to the students, particularly after the location move to the Peace Flame School & Vocational Training Centre site in January 2017. This move will reduce costs by sharing them across 3 different programs and also improve access to resources and space. The CCDO is intent on keeping a low-cost tuition fee for students to ensure availability of funding for students and can do so by increasing the number of students in the increased space.
Nduli Primary School: currently teaching 71 both local and further afield village children at low cost, providing school bus pick-up and drop-off and 2 meals a day. Some of these children have no real family and rely wholly on us to provide safety, food and education. This is what we can grow once we establish the Peace Flame school site, through turnover and consolidation.
