Project information

Ventimilla school building

We want to build a classroom on the school in Loma Grande and equip it with computers, internet and books to enable the children to have access to these types of media. This will encourage and develop their learning and aid them to acheive their full potential

May 2011 - June 2012

  • Need


    The children are very disadvantaged by the education they currently receive. They have no access to the internet, or computers to develop their skills. Once they reach the age to go to secondary school, they are very behind in their learning. These children live in poverty and have no possibilty of accessing these resources without help.


    We will be able to meet the children's needs in terms of developing their education and acheivement. This in turn will enable them to see a life outside of poverty and empower them to achieve this for themselves and their family.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To huild a classroom


    » To raise money to build the classroom.

    What success will look like

    Success will be the construction of the classroom

  • Impact


    We will be able to very clearly evidence the success of this project by the increased academic acheivement of these children.


    To not receive enough funding for the materials to build the classroom.
    If this is the case, the plans will be put on hold for this academic year to give the charity time to raise more money.


    I will be able to give regular updates and photos of the development of this project. I would also hope to forge links between the donors and the school, with correspondance from and to the children of the school.
