The Heroes of the Nation School, has been operational since 2002 and currently has 534 students in primary and high school. This element of the project is very important to the development of the community for the following reasons:

The children of the community attend HOTN for schooling for the following reasons:
i)    the standard of education is very high;
ii)   there is a boarding school available because it is too far to travel daily;
iii)  it is the only boarding school in a 10 km radius;
iv)  the children are fed a nutritious diet enabling them to concentrate;
v)   the location of the school is a long way from bad influences eg. drugs/alcohol, etcetera;
vi)  the school is needed because nearest town is 7 km away.
