Urafiki School at Nduta
These chilren are haning around the school. Classes begin on Monday, September 3rd.
There are 5 primary schools at Ntuda (3 at Kanembwa). Urafiki school (part of which is pictured here), will host 1800 students. 35 teachers will educate them -- that's a student-teacher ratio of a little more than 51:1!! There are about 6 buildings in this complex (the 7th is falling down, so I don't think they'll use that classroom).
