In 2008, Along with a friend of mine, Merv Colton
I visited Uganda and spent round 12 days in the country. Part of the trip was a visit to some projects run by the charity Plan International. Anyway, one of the first places we visited was a school run by Plan. The school had a pupil count of round 700 with 7 teachers ( Now theres a pupil -teacher ratio!) and 5 classrooms. 2 of the classes are held outside under a tree – even in very heavy rainfall.
For more information on the excellent work by Plan International, see their website www.plan.ie
