ACCS – Flooring

Before…

The flooring of all three classrooms was in a poor state. The previous floor material had broken up, leaving an uneven surface and areas of bare earth. To make matters worse, as not all the children had chairs, some had to sit on the dirt floor.

In the morning, when the children swept their classrooms, a lot of water had to be sprinkled onto the floor to prevent it generating a lot of dust. Occasionally, when the bore hole pump was not working, there was no water available, but the kids still had to sweep the floor. The resulting mist of dust lingered in the air all day, which could cause respiratory problems.

In these conditions, it was also very difficult for the children to keep their uniforms and their working areas clean.

After…

This has been improved by laying new concrete floors in all three classrooms.
