The nearest public primary school is located 2 km away, but the quality of education in the government run school is inferior to this burgeoning community run Christian school.
Yogo Primary school provides an excellent Christian education from toddler (JK) to Grade 8. The school consistently ranks first in the area and in the top five in the region for educational results. Many of the students who attend Yogo GCA are from the poorest families and cannot afford tuition costs.
The answer was to start a school farm where the parents of project students could volunteer time to help raise crops that will feed the children and be marketed to provide enough profit to cover the operating costs of the school.
Both the farm and the school are growing and thanks to generous donations from western groups the infrastructure has been able to (mostly) keep up with the incredible growth of this school.
