Hope for Tanzania

Darajambili Primary School

Published 26 April 2015

Steve Kweka, head teacher of Darajambili Primary School in Arusha, has sent us an update on progress. The school has a huge number of pupils (1739). From January this year the staff have been able to give lunch to a small number of pupils (389) who can afford the 6000/= (£2.13) per month.This income also allows the school to give 100 Standard 1 pupils from very poor families a free meal of porridge before they go home. In previous years no food was provided for any pupil.Steve started as head in 2013 and is slowly making improvements in the school which takes its pupils from one of the poorest areas of Arusha.
Steve writes "We are praying that God will raise up Samaritans to help us so that we can provide more pupils from poor families with a single meal whilst they are at school".
