Lo’o leys primary school strives to be a happy community primary school. So much has been achieved since its opening but there is still so much more to do. Lo’o leys village, where the school is located, is 7km from Beledhawo town and is a home to more than 1000 households whose mainly an agro-pastoral. The number of applicants for the last two years exceeded the school’s admission number. “If we limit the admission number there will be children living in our catchment area would not be offered a place at the school” says the school principal. The school initially had five classes; two of them were burnt with three classes left for more than 400. Some of the students are studying under the school trees that can’t protect them from the strong ultraviolet sun rays. On top of this, many children left the village to look for education in the neighboring areas and ended up dropouts as they could not avoid the fees. The community of Lo’oleys believe that all the children in the village should have the chance to attend their community school. As such, the school is committed to accepting all the students and should create a space in the school which can accommodate its growing number. The community is fundraising for $35,000 to build additional class rooms that can accommodate all school age groups. The DIALOGUE project is a resource mobilization initiative by DRC and will contribute 50% of the total cost of community and public project to create trust between Somali people and their government in the management of their own development. The community appeals you to support them in this undertaking to build new classes for the upcoming student to further their studies.
