Let's Build an Additional Educational Structure for Bula Gadud

Through participatory community consultation sessions, the Bulagadud village people developed a community driven response to the need of additional of two classroom, staffroom, and rehabilitation of the existing chain link of Bulagadud Primary School. This is due to high increase of student enrolment after the construction of classrooms under STEP project, education consultations and need of addressing education gaps within the village and other neighbouring villages that surrounds the Kismayo district. This was as well thought of due to need for more classroom due to gaps of student continuation of primary upper classroom. The CBEP process is an action that generated dialogue at Kismayo district and village levels to build momentum behind common goals for their district level education that was narrowed down to community level..

Bulagadud is a village located 30km North of Kismayo,along Kismayo-Jamaame corridor. the area is characterised of farming community. Their sole economic activities are farming and livestock rearing.  Even after the long civil war and severe droughts affected their socio-economic stability, Farming remains the backbone of their economy.There are also IDP settlements in the village.

The residence of Bulagadud showed great interest in participating in the community-based education project planning and matching grant sessions through the USAID funded Stabilization Through Education Program (STEP) implemented by the International Organization for Migration, and in partnership with Creative Associate’s Bar ama Baro program. STEP aims to strengthen the government-led, community-driven expansion of access to quality education for out-of-school children and youth to build local institutions. The CBEP includes supporting the communities, through Community Education Committees (CECs) in mobilizing for resources for priorities identified. The community prioritized piloting the matching grants

The village has no previous experience in initiating, co-financing, or directly financing projects and this is the first time this is being piloted in the town. The community prioritized piloting the matching grants of additional two classroom, a staffroom and rehabilitation of an existing chain link. The construction of the additional classroom staffroom centre for the teacher to have an open area to discuss and have meeting to foster their education and monitor school functions jointly and closely. The matching grant ratio will be 1:8 The community contribution is expected to be $5,000 with the project matching $40,000. Hence the total cost of the community project will be $45,000.

Thank you for contributing towards building the educational foundations of Bulagadud school going children through the addition of 2classroom staffroom and rehab of a boundary fence for the school. This will support the sustainability of early childhood education for the primary school in Bulagadud to have continuation of early childhood education and promotes community engagement and resilience
