Nyieth Primary School has a student population of over 650 students. This school has a few permanent structures used as staff rooms and for upper grades. One class is conducted in a church hall nearby while another is done under a tree in the school compound.
Upon completing grade 6, a student must transfer to another school that has grades 7 and 8. The nearest school is Ariang Primary School. To be able to accommodate the ever-growing number of students that are transferring from other schools, The Ariang Network of Schools’ feeder program has to keep reinventing itself and constantly seek resources to be able to keep up with the ever-increasing demands.
HOPE for Ariang, through the ANS program, has been supporting this school with books, pens, sports equipment, school administration tools, and capacity building training for teachers so that they are able to run school operations effectively.
Nyieth School has 1 hand-pump borehole nearby and relatively adequate bathrooms for both teachers and students. Water has a direct connection with girls’ education: Without boreholes, many girls wouldn’t come to school. With the borehole near the school, girls carry water containers when they come to school in the morning and fill them with water when they go back home.
