Fatima Zahra school has ten teachers (nine of them female), each with a monthly salary of 75 EUR. Textbooks and school items for all students cost around 400 EUR per year and school bags for new students cost around 100 EUR. The Jobbatical donation will cover the salary of 10 teachers for two months and all the required materials for students.
