FOCUSSA Primary was established in response to the high number of orphans locally (resulting from a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the community). The school's passionate teachers help vulnerable students develop skills which will lift them and their community out of poverty and improve their living standards.
Since COCO began partnering with FOCUSSA, we have constructed 6 classrooms fitted with solar power and rainwater harvesting infrastructure, as well as composting toilets and handwashing facilities. COCO has also supported the establishment of Income Generation Programmes using poultry, trees, and fishponds, which contribute towards the operational costs of FOCUSSA Primary and its creation of brighter futures for vulnerable children.
