Suango Mele Primary School has nearly 400 students and they lost the use of many of its buildings as a result of the cyclone. Today, most of the classes operate out of tents donated by Unicef. In an effort to get the kids back into cyclone proof classrooms, this venture has resulted in a fully repaired Headmaster’s house, reroofed, new patio/verandah, painted inside and out with landscaping.
How it happened: SHaRM connected with Ratua Foundation who was seeking partners to help with a major rebuild for this school. SHaRM confirmed assistance by undertaking the Headmaster’s rebuilding. Local builders have been engaged and paid and work will be finished in late-August. All work is Ministry of Education (MOE) approved and project managed by Cyrille Mainguy.
