It is a fact that having schools in good conditions is critical for students to achieve the expected academic results. For those who love to read and study, any place can be good to read and learn. They might argue that the space you are in does not matter, that knowledge is immaterial, that the physical context is secondary, and that what is important is to concentrate in what you are reading. This can never be the case for young children.
But if we transfer this reasoning to the reality of educational systems, the empiric evidence is flagrant: having rooms and learning spaces in good conditions is critical for students to achieve the expected academic results. In other words, the conditions of the schools directly impacts the performance of the students.
The fact is that a good school infrastructure, with renewed spaces, makes it possible for children that live in remote areas to study and, in addition, tends to improve the attendance and interest of students and teachers in learning. For this same reason, investments in school infrastructure have an essential role in solving access problems of students to the school system and to improve their performance.
Community Initiatives is financing educational interventions that include; construction of classrooms, libraries and pit latrines, refurbishing of existing infrastructure as well as motivating the students in Early Childhood early learning centres and primary schools.
