LIW-school - Liwan and Dekia Housing

A Boarding House for Liwan Students in Dekia  

Given the Liwan School only goes up to grade 4, those reaching higher grades come to Dekia to continue their schooling. There are now about 24 children – including 6 girls – in Dekia attending grade 5, 6 and 7. This is very exciting, given no one in their village had ever reached this level of schooling, and I hope that in years to come, these students will be able to help their village through being teachers, nurses, engineers and other skills so that Liwan can become a self sufficient thriving community.

LHP - Liwan - Health Post

A Health-Post for Liwan   

Liwan is a very remote village that WFA has been involved in over the past 5 years after we were approached with a plea to help provide a school and clean water for the village. The village is home to the Shuro people who have been marginalised and isolated, with no shared language with other cultural groups. The whole village was illiterate and they had no clean water, no toilets, no reliable food source and lacked health care and other basic services. Please see the following website for further information:
