Additions to be built include classrooms, computer laboratories, libraries, administration blocks, enviroloos and teachers’ houses. The total value of the renovations is N$69,2million and the schools are expected to be completed by January 2013.

During the 5 years of the Compact, the MCA-N Education Project will renovate and upgrade 47 schools in order to support the Ministry of Education’s “Education and Training Sector Improvement Programme”, ETSIP.  The schools to benefit from the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s funding were selected through the  ETSIP’s “needs pyramid”, which incorporates criteria such as the number of temporary classrooms in use and the number of children of school-going age in the area, who are not enrolled in school.  The project’s main objectives are to counter overcrowding and to create a conducive learning environment that provides the minimum facilities to support the curriculum.

The 47 schools are located in the Kavango, Khomas, Kunene, Ohangwena, Omaheke, Omusati, Oshana, Oshikoto and Otjozondjupa regions.
