Amount of grant approved (£) : 528

Year of grant : 2016

Nyailigamba has an extremely committed headteacher and very enthusiastic science teachers, one of whom led a team who were awarded 3rd prize in the national Young Scientist competition. He also carved a microscope out of wood to teach his pupils who had never seen a real one. We managed to get a donated microscope out to him, but although some of the school had electricity there was no power in the laboratories or library.

An award of £528 in May 2016 has allowed the labs and library to be in use after dark, and for the science teachers to use the donated microscope and laptop for science experiments. This is particularly important as from January 2017 Nyailigamba will also teach form 5 and 6 students, specialising in Science.
