Construction of Third Two-in-One Teachers’ House for Ufani Primary School

The retention of good teachers is severely impacted if they have to live in mud huts.

Vast numbers of teachers across Africa, because of their education and professional status, are reluctant to live in the primitive mud huts occupied by most residents of remote, rural areas. Building modest but modern two-family dwellings like this one, which includes plumbing for flush toilets and sinks, makes both the hiring and the retention of teachers less challenging.


  • Increased teacher retention

  • Improved prospects for hiring additional high-quality teachers, which was greatly needed at Ufani—as the school improved, more parents were sending children to Ufani
