Olopikidongoe Primary School
The oldest primary school in the area and until recently the only boarding school within the district was in need of a major face lift. Ongoing support resulted in a new cafeteria, a dining area and a library including hundreds of books. Though everyone said it would be a useless endeavor and that local families would not pay the fees associated with girls boarding and education, AMS built a girls dormitory. The first year the facility become home to 90 girls. The next year that number grew to 120. School staff stated that many of the girls were placed in the dorm rather than being married off a young age as would have been done traditionally. The school continues to flourish.
