Donations given to the 2014/15 appeal will go towards the new buildings and staff needed to enable the school to welcome an additional forty girls in February next year, and cover the necessary running costs for the year.
Pencil Power aims to raise at least £50,000 by December 31 this year to contribute to the teaching and running costs of Ibba Girls School for Year 2, which begins in Feb 2015.
We aim to provide for the teaching, food, accommodation and healthcare of the 40 additional girls for one year.
To break this down further, we aim to raise:
- £150 each month to cover the cost of a teacher
- £200 each month to cover the cost of a school nurse
- £7 per week to feed a girl
- £3 per week to provide schoolbooks, stationery and learning materials
