English classes for disadvantaged children

I run a centre that provides free English classes to children from poor and vulnerable backgrounds. English fluency gives students better employment opportunities for the future, allowing them to escape the poverty cycle. I am self-funding this project, however, I lack funds to construct a proper, basic classroom. Classes are held outdoors and during the rainy season the dirt floor becomes flooded and muddy and there are many mosquitoes. $1000 would provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for the children. A suitable classroom will enable us to support more students in the future.
