The Project

The Turkana Teacher Resource Centre, known locally as the “Anna Nanjala Education Centre” is now finished. This building is the Teacher Resource Centre for the Diocese of Lodwar. It houses a library, offices and a common room. The library has been stocked with books, each of which has the name of one of our sponsors written inside the front cover. This has all cost €45,000 and took some ten months to complete.
