Resourcing Schools

CWEF partners with local schools to provide much-needed resources for teaching rural students. Schools in developing areas can generally be guaranteed a roof, chairs, and an assigned teacher. The availability, quantity and quality of any of those or any additional teaching aids cannot be presumed. In fact, desk surfaces can be old and broken through, making it difficult for students to write. Libraries are few, and access to books is scarce. Also, additional teaching enrichment for music, art, sports and science is often lacking necessary supplies.

CWEF works with teachers and principals of schools in need to determine what resources are lacking and what types of resources would be well-utilized by the school. CWEF also works with the school to define a usage and maintenance plan to keep the new supplies working and available for students and teachers to use.
