A Survey conducted by the ECDE Department showed, maximum students qualifying the entrance exams for class 1 in Primary Schools were former students from Amani Pre-Primary School.  The teachers’ effort in providing quality education and producing learners ready for transition was highly recognized by the officers.

Before surgery – She did not even know where to look for the photograph. Notice the dense, white cataract in both her eyes. She has lived with these cataracts for a long time waiting for this simple surgery to enable her to see her lovely grandchildren.

After surgery- she is happy and eager to go home to her grandchildren. She was not very keen to smile because she is now concerned she has no teeth! It is time for a dental camp now.
