URDT COMMUNITY SCHOOLS

TIJHAAR COMMUNITY SCHOOL NKONDO

 The school was established in 2003 by a committed member of the Nkondo community. Sadly the founder passed away and the school had to close in 2005 due to managerial and financial problems. In 2006, thanks to the stamina of the students who remained teaching each other, the URDT decided to transform the school into a community school that will use the 2-generation approach to education and development.

On annual basis it educates 130 students from Secondary 1 to Secondary 4 (O-level).

Aim:

The school's mission is to provide disadvantaged children with relevant secondary education that shapes their character, develops their leadership and other talents to grow up as responsible, healthy and successful citizens willing to contribute to community development.

The school aims at academic excellence and functional literacy of the pupils and their parents. Therefore, besides the compulsory curriculum endorsed by the Ministry of Education and Sports, the school is developing a skills-based co-curriculum that aims at improving the standard of living in the students’ homes through mastery of the principles of the creative process (visionary life orientation) and developing understanding of the mastery of sustainable development and systems thinking.
