Meole Brace School has successfully established a partnership with Mnyanjani Secondary School in Tanzania. This summer Meole Brace School students will be visiting the Mnyanjani School and getting a flavour of what life is like in an African school. In order to complete the experience we aim to host five Tanzanian students and two teachers from Mnyanjani School for 2 weeks in September 2020. It will be the next stage in the relationship between our two schools and represents a great opportunity to offer a truly inspirational, cultural experience in return for the generosity and hospitality offered to our students.
As part of our fundraising we will have to pay for passports and visas for these students as well as transport within Tanzania and their return flights. We also aim to raise funds to equip the school with more chairs, concrete floors, books and laboratory equipment.
The area is a poor region of a very poor country and although education is provided free by the state, many cannot access it as they cannot afford the uniform, books or pens needed. Many students come from families who struggle to find enough money for anything more than 1 meal of maize or rice per day, so a large number of students arrive for school without breakfast and without any lunch.
Facilities at the school are very basic. Typical classrooms have dirt floors, no windows and class sizes of up to 90 students.
