Kisa primary was founded in 1993 and it has been able to educate out 1758 children of which 754 are orphans. Unfortunately some of have not been able to acquire any further education after primary seven(grade seven).
At present Kisa Primary school is offering education to children many of whom are orphans and cannot pay school fees and providing other basic needs like clothes,food,health services and shelter. These pupils amount to almost 51% of the total population of the school. However the 49% of the children in school,their school fees paid is used to meet school requirements and payment of salaries; this implies that the school cannot manage to meet meals,health services,clothes and water for the pupils because we don’t have the money. As a result most pupils attend class on an empty stomach whereby they end up not concentrating in class and their performance is greatly affected. And not only are they always unhappy and sad but they are always angry. It cost about $2 to feed a pupil per day at Kisa primary school.
