READ/IQRA - BORAMA
Sub: - Major Needs of the School Supported by READ NGO
We take this opportunity to welcome and express our deep appreciation to World Vision organization, who is now planning to support the schools at Baki and Lughaya districts of Awdal region.
The schools at these locations suffered from a set back caused by their geographic locations, as well as the remote and far-reaching areas where accessibility is difficult and the socio-economic of the population are nomadic living under poverty line.
We share a common vision and objectives with any partner, who is committed and dedicated to improve/develop human dignity as READ/IQRA does.
The communities, in which READ/IQRA extends its service to, are plagued by the causes of poverty, ignorance, diseases, and under-development. This local NGO is engaged to improve and support not only the education sector of the remote, nomadic schools but to enhance the living conditions of those communities by providing them with relevant workshops and awareness programs on regular periods.
At READNGO, we see education as the major if not the only tool to fight against poverty, ignorance, diseases, underdevelopment and the other problems those communities are facing.
Our capacity to fund the various needs of the schools is limited; therefore we are once again expressing our utmost appreciations and welcome our new partner, the World Vision.
1- Teachers incentives:-
The school fees paid by nomadic families are very low since the sicio-economic of the nomadic community is less 10000/s/sh per family per month. This fee cannot cover the teachers the teacher’s basic needs, therefore teachers need extra support to cover his/her basic needs.
2- Capacity building:-
There is a programmer designed to strengthen the capacity building of teachers training during summer vocation called (SCOTT), funded by international NGO and agencies eg a) CARE b) SCF/UK C)SCF/ Denmark and E.C, this training is conducted at Amoud University. Only 1/3 of teachers we support participate in this training two third of teachers are lacking this training.
This training promotes the quality of teachers in their capacity.
3- Sustainability of Teachers incentives
In order to avoid the risks in failing the support given by teachers in every month they need, an income generation project that are applicable in every location that can given grantee, the sustainability of teachers monthly incentives.

11- Need for extra teachers to the current teachers supported by READ-NGO------the number of extra teachers needed is yearly.
12- Extension of new classes in certain schools. The yearly increase of enrolment of students and gradual year grade increase, requires the extension of new classes in certain schools.
