Kainake Elementary School
The Kainake Elementary School was established in January 2014 at the pilot site to cater for an urgent community need. The nearest school to the community is up to 2 hours for the kids to walk. This created an immense problem for the community because school aged children were not in school and by the time they were enrolled into schools they were older than other students. This off course created other problems.
Since the establishment of the Kainake school, more school aged children are now in school. Currently the school is catering for children aged 5 to 8 attending early childhood learning, elementary prep school, grade 1 and grade 2. Although the school has been registered with the Bougainville Education Board in 2015, teaching positions have not been created meaning that our teachers continue to teach on a voluntary basis.
The Kainake Project supports the school through provision of materials, books and teaching allowances for the teachers.
Our project aims to provide equal educational opportunities to girls
