Secondary Schools
There are now 38 secondary schools being assisted with books and computers.   At the end of each school year, many schools donate text books – thousands of them.  At the warehouse, they are sorted into subject, publisher, then into grade – and at this point allocated to the schools to give continuity with year-to-year texts of each subject.

Subjects include English, maths, sciences, history, geography, PDHPE, business & economics, design & technology, computer science, foreign language (French & Italian), hospitality and more.

One school wrote a grateful letter of appreciation and said: "One could hardly talk about our school now without mentioning the name Kanga School project. Yours is the first and only consignment yet received from local and international donors".

Generators have been provided for schools without electricity to assist with requirements for computers.  Funds have been provided to assist with the building of a library for many of these schools. Further assistance has been given with equipment for a science laboratory in one school, for home economics departments, and many schools with sewing machines.  One school was in real need of replacement mattresses for its few boarders, and Kanga Schools was able to help.
