Streetkids International is also active in the south of the country, in Mtwara near the border to Mozambique, which is very poor. We work with our project partner Kanisa la Biblia (KLB), and were able to help set up the boarding school in January 2010. The school in Mtwara goes from the 8th grade upwards.
This is one of the biggest projects we want to push in the coming years. On opening there were over 50 children. The sleeping quarters are full up, and we also need windows before monsoon season.
In January 2012 the second school year began. We now have 123 pupils in four classes. Additionally we were able to finish the first block of new boarding quarters. We still however need so much: a security fence, lab apparatus for the chemistry and biology room, another boarding quarter, and so on!
With our partner we run a post-primary school in Mtwara in the south of Tanzania. The education of the orphans in the Call & Vision Secondary School creates a basis on which the children can look after themselves for the rest of their lives, and no longer be dependent on our help and your donations.
