Altogether six teachers facilitated (more than 250) students who are both orphans and non-orphans. One week after the training, more students know and attendance becomes more and more. Teachers were trained beforehand the summer course by experienced teacher namely Leilana Quinger, making sure that they are confident with the lesson planning and how they are supposed to prepare and took guidelines for teaching as well as prepared them to be very familiar with the fun games. In addition to Leilana, both Kristina and Thomas also make possible for summer course.

The way, training designed, training looked very enjoyable for the junior learners who most of the time, found time much enjoyable as they are quite the different from their normal school lives.

During the monitoring trips, more than (20) children stated that they like school very much as it was full of fun and happy hours, free from beatings and scolding. More than (10) students were recorded during monitoring trips that they came to school much earlier to the school hours as they like to participate or at least observe the other students were playing (doing classroom activities) in the classrooms. Similarly, teachers, community leaders, as well as the peasants feel that summer course is the best among the activities done for the whole year, as it is much more contributing to their children development and gaining life-skills.
