We are renovating classrooms at our local primary school. Many students have to share a desk. Because they sit so close together, students are easily distracted. By purchasing a desk, you are helping to provide our students in rural Tanzania with the learning environment they need in order to focus on their studies.
In 2004 Tanzanian Children’s Fund entered into a partnership with the Tanzanian government to co-manage Gyetighi Primary School. Gyetighi was once the lowest ranked school in the region. Today Gyetighi is one of the best schools in its region.
It’s working! In 2004 only 25% of the students passed the Standard 7 National Exam which determines their eligibility to matriculate to secondary school. In 2010, 96% of the students passed this exam and in 2011 100% of the kids passed the national exam!
