Orkiu Primary School

Orkiu Primary School sits high up on a windswept hill near the town of Loliondo; the setting is spectacular. This small, enterprising community started its own primary school; they built two classrooms, one teachers’ house, and an office. They requested FoTZC assistance to build a 2-in-1 teachers’ house as well as two additional classrooms. Before we built the classrooms,  Orkiu only had two complete classrooms, so half of the students had to wait outside in the cold while the other half of the student body was in class. The community completed two classrooms of their own while we were building our two, so the school now has a total of six classrooms.
