Closed EMDI BRIDGE TO SECONDARY SCHOOL
The Bridge to Secondary School project has also received a boost of cows donated by a group of 6 retired Canadian teachers, to help the schools start a feeding program and other income generating activities, that will enable the schools acheive some degree of sustainability after a period of 5 years. One school has received 5 cows, two schools have received 2 cows, and one school has received, one cow. The target is for each school to have 5 cows.
Initially it is expected that the cows will calf and start producing Milk in the next one year and this milk will be used to make early mornig tea for the teachers who will be conducting extra tuition for the National Examination Class (Grade 8s) and for the Kindegarten classes. It is hoped that eventually all students will be able to have mid-morning tea, in three years time.
