Nema funds various projects and has so far built 5 schools, enabling 1,500 children to receive a primary school education. In addition, we sponsor around 100 children a year with a fully funded secondary school scholarship.
Before Nema started working in the area, less than 1% of children went on to study at high school, and less than 20% completed all 7 years of elementary school.
We have attempted to counter this problem by funding numerous education related projects, like our school feeding project which saw fantastic results and a growth in attendance rates. Children are allowed to come to school instead of fishing for their supper or fetching water if they are given a meal.
We are sending over 80 children to boarding high school.
Nema, funded by JoJo and others has built 5 primary schools in Guludo, Ningaia, Crimize, Luamuama and Manica. During the 2019 Cyclone Kenneth all 12 schools in the area were devastated, but with Nema's help they were restored and are now useable again.
