Kumbi Primary School
This school opened in October 2021.
The Project site is located in Harena Buluk District of Bale Zone, Kumbi Kebele around 595 km away from Addis Ababa to the south east of the country and is the first project to be completed with 50/50 match funding from Educate a Child. The project includes construction of 7-classrooms, one Early Child Education classroom, one library with necessary infrastructure / books and 2- gender segregated sanitation blocks - each with eight-pit dry latrines.
The construction started in May 2020. Heavy rain, Covid-19 pandemic and construction material cost inflation are among the factors that have limited construction activities and resulted in delay of the construction.
Currently the school project is 100% complete and became available to Kumbi and the neighbouring Kebele communities from mid- October this year. The communities are delighted with these new facilities.
