SDP believes education is the pathway to a brighter future.

We invest in school infrastructure (40 new classrooms; staff housing; and dormitories for boarders).

School project fees have been provided for schools to undertake worthwhile improvements.

The Balimo campus was launched with 105 FODE students. It has now enrolled 210 students and is being upgraded to offer tertiary training for health workers and teachers.

We are introducing a modern e-learning initiative through the upgraded telecommunications network (tablets and TV screens in the classrooms; specialist teacher training in the use of this modern technology).
