Project

Chinacla Middle School

The Chinacla Middle School project was a Costa Foundation enhancement of an existing school in a rural area, where many school buildings are in a state of disrepair. Before our investment, classrooms were unsafe, toilets were dangerously unhygienic, and rooves were leaking.

The Costa Foundation investment meant that five classrooms were refurbished, campus walkways were rebuilt, a computer room and toilet block were added, and new furniture, learning aids and computers supplied.

One of the Costa Foundation trustees joined the celebrations of the school opening on Friday 9th September 2016 and was genuinely impressed with the new facilities and the enthusiasm shown by all of the students.

Maryjury, a student at the school said, “Before, during the winter we had to move the chairs around to avoid water [in the classrooms]. Sometimes, with heavy rain, we had to go home and the next day spend time cleaning the classrooms. For me, the most exciting thing is that we don’t have to miss any more lessons as we can stay in classrooms throughout the winter and rains.”
