I am going to Tanzania in October this year with my school. Our aim is to help unprivileged kids in rural areas get an education that they need and desire. We will go and repair classrooms so they an be used by the children and do many more things to help the people in Tanzania. My aim is to raise over £500 which will fund school refurbishment and help make a difference. I would be very grateful if everyone could donate to my fundraising page. The more money raised, the more work we can do.
In Tanzania only just over 50% of the population enrol for primary school and even fewer manage to make the next step to Secondary School. Facilities are extremely limited and often pushed to the limit to cope with the number of children:teacher ratios. Classrooms have fallen into disrepair, have leaking roofs, termite infested walls, mud floors and often no windows, doors or even desks.
The Livingstone Tanzania Trust (www.livingstonetanzaniatrust.com) is a grassroots ‘poverty alleviation charity’ working in partnership with rural communities around Babati in northern Tanzania.
These communities are mostly made up of very poor subsistence farmers who have had little formal education, and the opportunities for their children are similarly limited.
LTT work to break that cycle through education; by improving and expanding the existing educational facilities at kindergarten, primary and secondary schools; and by offering key life skills classes at both the school and community level.
