Our Tanzanian Project Manager Mathew Gabriel Sulle’s research uncovered a need for a new primary school in the small village of Qameyu, about 80 km from the town of Babati in northwestern Tanzania. Approximately 50 – 60 children were without a school. Thanks to the timely donation of Mr Ted Woodcock of Victoria, we were able to build the first phase of this school that included 4 classrooms and an Administration Building. The village agreed to construct a Toilet building, which is now under construction.
The future phases will include the remaining 3 classrooms, a Library Building, a Kitchen/Dining Hall building, Teacher Residences, and Sanitary and Water systems.
Electricity supply to the site is impractical and costly, so solar power systems are envisaged in the future.
