Tree planting exercise began in April where a total of 500 trees were planted and since then we have had watering of trees on a daily basis by the local community.
Classrooms Block A
The first Classroom Block is complete. It has four classrooms which will suffice for the first 2 years after opening the school.
Houses for teachers and staff
Through our partner organizations startup lions and Lionstreghth CBO we have constructed teacher’s living units that shall be rented and the income will be used to support vulnerable girls in the program.
The housing units are 60% complete with two units of 6 separate rooms and two more blocks are at 50% complete. The Houses are on the Startup Lions Campus, but within a 10 minute walking distance from Wakanda School gate.

The Classrooms of Wakanda girls will be equipped with “smart desks”. These were designed for the school specifically and serve as writing desks for the normal school time, but then every classroom can be converted to a computer lab for extra technology lessons.
So far, four classrooms have been equipped!
