Priority Projects

Student Hostel #6 ($120,000)

Hostel Apartment

The expansion of APU to 320 students as of 2017 has stressed the capacity of the five student hostels, built to hold a maximum of 60 but currently holding more. The construction of a sixth student hostel will certainly help to alleviate tension among the girls, and improve the hygiene and overall quality of life for our students.

By expanding our hostel capacity, we will be able to accommodate an additional 40 students to bring our capacity up to 360 students. The additional private students that this will accommodate will increase revenue and contribute to a more sustainable school.



To Date, We’ve Raised:
$52,000 of $120,000

Legacy Building: Phase II

ImageAPU is halfway to having a building that can house our library, computer lab, administrative offices, medical clinic, and future Teacher Training College classrooms. This building has been a long time in coming and is badly needed, as currently, our library, staffroom and computer labs are all taking up critically needed classroom space. Needless to say, we just can’t wait to finish this project!

The construction of the Legacy Building is our most challenging and exacting project undertaken so far at APU. When it is completed, it will change the entire feel of the school from one of ‘pioneering and making do’ to that of a complete and high -functioning school. We will no longer be limping along, squished into shared classroom space. Our teachers will have the preparation and meeting space that they deserve and our administrators will finally be able to have offices.

With many thanks to all of our individual and group donors, we have successfully raised all the funds necessary for the construction of the 2nd phase of our Legacy Building.
