The mission of Nanka School Project (NSP) is to empower students for lifelong success through quality education in a safe and clean environment.
Prior to NSP’s involvement at Community High School (CHS) Nanka, the learning environment for students was unacceptable, and prospects for improvement of that situation were bleak. Students were sitting in flooded classrooms with no electricity or plumbing, poor sanitation, and a lack of qualified teachers in various subject areas. The situation was dire and needed urgent attention.
To commemorate the eight-year anniversary of NSP and set Nanka students on a path to greater success, we intend to establish an information technology (IT) center at CHS Nanka and have completed a draft project plan including key objectives, budget, and community engagement strategy.
Through this project, we also wish to honor the memory of a young NSP volunteer who died 3 years ago in a motor vehicle accident. This individual was very hard working; passionate about education, science, and service; and was applying for graduate school before the deadly incident.
To make the CHS Nanka IT center a reality, and to ensure that it delivers real value for the community, we need your financial support, as well as donations of equipment, time, and expertise. We need laptop computers as well as IT peripherals, and plan to install solar panels to power the facility. We are also seeking volunteers to support this project, especially willing individuals with experience in IT installation and maintenance; IT education and curriculum; and solar power procurement and maintenance.
As we look ahead to this next phase of NSP’s engagement at CHS Nanka, we also want to thank those who have contributed — in any capacity — to our work over these last eight years. Without your support, the progress we have made would not have been possible.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions about this project.
