Zerfenti School is a public school for pre-schooling (grade 0) and grades 1 through 8 in Zerfenti, Addi Azmera, Dogu’a Tembien, Tigray, Ethiopia.[2]

Description[edit]

Zerfenti school
First class rooms

The Zerfenti School has 5 class rooms in stone buildings. As of 2019, the school had 350 students, 184 girls and 166 boys.[2] There were:

  • 36 students in one class in Grade 0
  • 56 students in one class in Grade 1
  • 49 students in one class in Grade 2
  • 39 students in one class in Grade 3
  • 41 students in one class in Grade 4
  • 38 students in one class in Grade 5
  • 34 students in one class in Grade 6
  • 30 students in one class in Grade 7
  • 28 students in one class in Grade 8

Over the last 20 years, important efforts have been done to increase schooling in Tigray, particularly of girls.[3] The large intake in primary schools in Ethiopia over the last decades has led to lack of classrooms.[4] Hence, classes take place through shifts (morning and afternoon).

Water and sanitation[edit]

In 2018, there was no water available on the school terrain. They used water from the village hand-dug well with handpump.

Clothes change place for adolescent girls

There is a change room for girls handling menstrual hygiene;[2] the main aim is preventing adolescent girls dropping out from school.[5][6][7] Up to 2018, there was no toilet building.[2]

Ecosan toilets at Zerfenti school

In 2019, the School WatSani project has built an Ecosan toilet building at this school.[8][9] Through nudging approach, the students are sensitised for using the sanitation and water facilities.[8]

Transportation[edit]

All children travel to school on foot. Many students will walk more than an hour (some even two hours), twice a day, to come to school.[2]
