Degosach is a village high in the mountains, relying on a rugged cliff-hugging road that is closed in the rainy seasons due to mudslides. The large primary school provides Grades 1 to 8 for almost 800 students, with overloaded classes. The condition of most of the classrooms is extremely poor, with many rooms so deteriorated, they are beyond repair. Yet given the location of this school, there are no alternatives.
In late 2019 we commenced building new classrooms and carrying out repair work on existing classrooms. We will also ensure there are adequate toilets and safe water on-site. We look forward to sharing the outcome of this project in mid-2020.
