Chipembere Community Development Organization has used $5,734.428 which is 60% of its approved $9,557.38 two roomed school block construction grant effectively. In just  one month,  the school block is now at roofing stage with fixing iron sheets, plastering (including window and door fixing) and finishing with flooring remaining for the project to be fully completed.  The project is ahead of schedule and expected to be completed by November 30, 2021. Once completed, a total of 146 students are expected to use the classroom moving away from the hazardous and usually disturbing tree shade. The quick implementation has been attributed to high levels of community participation and huge need of the school infrastructure in the area.
