Bombali School for the Blind, Makeni

The Bombali School caters for 43 primary school children and accommodates another 17 who are integrated into mainstream secondary education. It currently has a waiting list.

The school was originally situated in a disused abattoir, which still today houses the dormitories and dining area. New classrooms have been built, but the school remains in desperate need of support. It is recognised by the Government but has yet to receive any state funding.
Bunk beds and mattresses have recently been  provided by an American charity, but the needs of the school remain immense. We hope to develop a strong partnership with a local charity to support major improvements.
