MBAGHAI, TANZANIA – MBAGHAI SECONDARY SCHOOL

About the School

Mbaghai is located near Mombo, Tanzania. What is unique about this community is that everything has been built by the students’ parents over a period of ten years. The government has not contributed to the infrastructure, supplying only the teachers. The nearest school for these children is an eleven kilometer walk one-way. Many of the families are subsistence farmers, growing only enough to support themselves and their families and yet they have shown extraordinary dedication to maintaining this school for their children and neighbors.

The secondary school has 173 students – 76 boys and 97 girls. 78 more students are expected to register in the coming school year, commencing in January. There are thirteen teachers, ten of which are male and three females.
