Brajirois Christian Elementary School

Brajirois, pronounced Bra-jsha-wah, is located at the very top of a mountain, accessible only by 4-wheel drive vehicles. The school has solar-powered electricity and has a cistern to collect rain water. Homes in the community have no electricity. Families in this remote mountain village are so thankful for this school to educate and feed their children. Once children complete elementary school, they go to the secondary school at the foot of the mountain, the Williamson Secondary School.

Current Needs – Brajirois

Individual Classrooms – Three grades still meet in each corner of the small one-room auditorium. We plan to build three new classrooms on the school property to provide an individual classroom for grades 4-6. ($20,000 per classroom * 3 classrooms = $60,000)

Furnishings – The school needs additional benches with desktops and chalkboard partitions ($200/bench, $250/teacher desk, $150/chalkboard)

Friday VBS & Summer Lunch Program – The school wants to host a weekly VBS on Fridays in the summer and feed the children a hot meal with a take-home bag of rice and beans every week ($32/child)
