Hanganeni Primary School
The Hanganeni Primary School, located in the Erongo region of Namibia, is a 21 classroom school that services over 900 students, ages 5 to 13. Though the attendance rate is currently 97%, the graduation rate is just at 66%. There is one desk per two students, and minimal government funding. The biggest need of the school is to add more classrooms, an assembly hall, and school transportation.
School in session:
Mid-January through late April, mid-May through mid-August, and early September through mid-December.
