Imekuwa Pre-primary Class

Teaching Assistant: Lucy Ally Aziza
Number of pre-primary children: 101
Number of primary children: 551
Imekuwa was EdUKaid’s flagship pre-primary class opening in 2009 following a whole school renovation project. The primary school has gone from strength to strength since then with a 60% increase in the number of children enrolling in primary school and a 100% increase in the number of children progressing to secondary school. When we first visited Imekuwa Primary School in 2007/8 it was a shock to see children trying to learn in such a dilapidated, poorly resourced environment. At that time the pre-primary children were sitting, unattended, under a tree since they were without a classroom or a teacher. These children, aged 4-6, walked to school everyday in the hope of an official education, but unfortunately the school had no resources to support them. EdUKaid was successful in raising funds to transform the school into an attractive, safe and welcoming environment to provide these children with somewhere to learn. Recognising the crucial importance of early years’ education, the decision was also made to build a brand new classroom for the pre-primary children and recruit a teacher and assistant for the class.
Pre-primary teacher Atimaa, supported by teaching assistant Lucy are both passionate about their work believing that a good quality education in early years is essential if children are to have any chance in achieving their full potential. Atimaa trained as a teacher at the local Montessori College where she spent 2 years studying this unique approach which allows children to learn effectively through creative work and play.
Your commitment to fund Atimaa and Lucy for at least a year means that 101 children have access to a quality education at a time when they have the greatest capacity to learn.
