Nacala Logistics laid the first stone for the construction of the Cunle Primary School, in Ribàué District, in Nampula.
The event took place this Tuesday, February 21, 2023, in a well-attended ceremony attended by Ribàué District Government representative, EP1 de Cunle Board members, local traditional leaders, and local people.
The school to be built is made of conventional material and is resilient to impacts from climate change to seismic actions. The new infrastructure will replace the current one, whose location and structure do not provide safe and learning conditions for the little more than 200 students who attend the school.
The construction project for the new school foresees three (03) classrooms, one (01) administrative block and toilets for children and adults, and will be executed by local labor, namely young people from the Cunle community, who will have a source of income during the 8 months that the construction will last.
We are always concerned about ensuring the welfare of our communities. Therefore, Nacala Logistics thought of building this school with conventional material, to contribute to improving the teaching and learning conditions of the children in this region," said Celso Mutadiua, Community Relations Manager at Nacala Logistics, speaking at the ceremony to lay the first stone.
For her part, the Permanent Secretary of Ribàué, Ana Paula Banana, said that ?the school is very important for the community of Cunle and it was long overdue? ?our appeal is to be very rigorous in its construction, in order to have a better quality of work? she added.
On the same occasion, on the school premises, the project to open a borehole to serve the school and the surrounding community was presented.
The total investment for the opening of the water borehole and the construction of classrooms for EP1 in Cunle is about 5 million meticais.
With the borehole, the distance and risk of running over community members crossing the railway line in search of the precious liquid will be reduced.
