Completed : Mwisho Wa Shamba Primary School – 2 New Classrooms, Teachers Office and Water Catchment System

About the Project

Currently, there are only 7 useable classrooms for the 895 students, resulting in overcrowding in each classroom. This can decrease the teacher’s ability to interact with their students and hinder the students from learning to the best of their ability. For example, the ECD class and Class 1 share a classroom that means there are over 85 students being taught in one classroom. The average class size in Tanzania is 70 students per teacher which is 2.5 times higher than the UN’s sustainable development goal of 28 students per instructor. Additionally, the teachers need an office where they can store teaching materials, plan lessons and collaborate with each other.
