A non-governmental organization (NGO), Bonnah Education Trust Fund, is launching a project dubbed ”Mazingira Bora kwa Elimu Bora,” to aid in the improvement of learning conditions of public primary schools in the Segerea Constituency in Tanzania.
Ms Bonnah Kaluwa, Segerea Member of Parliament said that the campaign seeks to support and improve the quality of education for all 13 wards of the constituency.
“Through the support of various education stakeholders we expect to collect about 9bn/- which is going to solve the various challenges facing our schools in Segerea,” pointed out Ms Kaluwa.
The campaign will also seek to resolve the inadequate classroom and classroom infrastructure, hygienic sewage systems and access to clean water for the constituency.
“A total of 15,000 desks, 1,3335 modern toilets, 12 water wells and 38 special rooms that will be used in the schools by female students to cater for their needs in the 13 wards,” she noted.
Ms Flavian Matata, former Miss Universe and the founder of Flavian Matata foundation expressed that her foundation will partner and support the campaign.
“We applaud the efforts done by the MP of Segerea by initiating the campaign in 2011 at Kipawa Ward, by then she was the councillor and it proved a success and leading example for public schools in the region,” also noted Ms Matata.
