Project Gallery Additional Information

The school was originally built around 1960 when it was just mud buildings and iron sheets. Hand in Hand has assisted in the construction of 5 secondary school classrooms, 2 pre-primary school classrooms, a community clinic and tailoring workshop. We have also funded the refurbishment of 10 primary school classrooms. During this time the local community have built teachers houses and toilet bock. Also had electricity connected and have provided most of the labour for construction projects. All this has resulted in the schools ability to cater for nearly 800 children from the local area.

Hand in Hand has linked a Chelmsford secondary school, King Edward VI Grammar School (KEGS) with Mogonjet and facilitates the communication between them, which has involved yearly trips to the project. KEGS have significantly contributed to the school with the initial involvement of funding the building of a science block. We have seen the development of the school over the years with the local government also contributing to the school's development. 

During the last 5 years Hand in Hand have sponsored over 40 students from the secondary school leavers into vocational training at NTI, Centre of Hope.
