The teachers and students in Kafanchan schools teach and study under very difficult circumstances, with few resources and poor conditions. The attached photos show a teacher working with dedication, teaching a class of eager students. There are not even enough books for every student to have their own. The students are typical of so many Nigerian children, eager to learn, despite the obstacles that they face.
Our newest project is at Kogum River, in the Diocese of Kafanchan, in Kaduna State, Nigeria. Kafanchan is largely rural and is relatively poor, even by Nigerian standards. The district has several schools from primary to secondary. Some of these schools are old and were built in the 1930s and are in serious need of renovation.
