Zioya Primary School sits on the Ecrad site along with Orphan Care Centre.

The primary school consists of 3 buildings with 10 teachers and up to 600 children including 100 orphans.

Classrooms at Zioya Primary School are a simple affair.

Open space, no desks, little paper, a blackboard and lots of children.

With no chairs or desks, the only option is to sit on the dusty floor.

Ecrad supports the education program by supplying 2 of the teachers, running water and toilet facilities.

The Ecrad site also provide a safe place to play games such as football and netball.

The teaching staff are desperate for desks to further improve the education capability and during a visit by ECRAD Scotland in 2013 asked if Ecrad could help to make this happen.

A wooden desk is estimated to cost £25 and and a target for Ecrad this year is to raise £2,500 for 100 desks to be built locally.
