Amongst those who have also benefited from HelpMadina are the local missionary schools.
In addition to funds received for healthcare provision, HelpMadina has also been given funds from local schools in Gloucestershire. It was felt appropriate that these funds should be used to help village schools in the Madina area.
Education is key to improved health for an individual as well as for the community.
The funds are being used to restore small village schools which provide educational facilities for children of many ages. The first school to benefit is in a village close to Madina called Kafitori. This school was in a desperate state of disrepair.
The whole of the community from children to elders worked together with building materials paid for by HelpMadina. Kafitori village school now has new floors, windows, doors, blackboards and desks.
Following the success of this project it is now planned that more links are formed between schools in the Madina District and Gloucestershire.
