Only two short years ago, the educational opportunities in Lega Tafo were limited. The primary school was dilapidated and overcrowded and there was no high school at all. Now, only 2 years later, Lega Tafo is a community with fabulous educational opportunities. A new school building has been constructed for the students of Lega Tafo primary school, providing four brand new fully furnished classrooms. When the primary school students graduate, they now have a fabulous high school to attend. The high school began when Glimmer funded the construction of two academic buildings and an administrative building. The local education bureau, inspired by the dedication of Glimmer, decided to add two more academic buildings to the school. As enrollment increased and the community showed their commitment to the school, Glimmer decide to fund and equip a library building and a laboratory building as well as new water points and latrines on the campus. The high school now provides complete 9-12 education with full a full science curriculum. It has been a huge success for the people of Lega Tafo and a great example of what is possible when Glimmer, local bureaus, and the community all collaborate for a common goal.
