    The school was founded by a community based organization i founded in 2009 which engages in a series of projects in the fields of Education, Environment, Sustainable Agriculture, self help community empowerment initiatives that aims at combating poverty, ignorance,disease and irrational superstitious practices in our society.

    My schools are located in three different places, most of the pupils come from communities around there, on the schools are clinics.

    There is great need for volunteer teachers, medical staffs and technical experts in the fields of eco tourism, community work and outreach programs.

    We also own the a CENTER which is an establishment comprising of a library, common room for lessons and volunteer socializing, the hostel where volunteers and other guests to our initiatives are housed.
