In 2003, IDC initiated a network of nine primary schools in Ihushi and neighbouring villages.
The network calls itself LAVISMO (Lake Victoria Schools Motivation) and stimulates collaboration between schools, e.g. by oganising thematic days for teachers. IDC supports the network and has
among other things provided the schools with
school kitchens, rainwater tanks and
orchards – with the aim that the students should get school breakfast.
LAVISMO also invites t he members schools to different joint events. Among other things, it has organised Sports Days when children from all nine schools come together to compete in athletics, football and netball.
