Hope for Tanzania

Update on Tuishime School

Published 28 March 2016

The new headteacher, Elisa Nassari, has settled into his role and is slowly making changes to the school so that it becomes more professionally run. The number of children at the school remains at 385. Hope for Tanzania has funded outdoor play equipment which is being enjoyed by the pre-primary children. The school wants to build new offices for the headteacher and deputy director which will enable the library to be returned to its former use. A new kitchen needs to be built as the existing wooden one was deemed unsuitable for cooking.Teacher Alex has retired and left the school - he was the original headteacher and has given 13 years of faithful service for which we are very thankful. Andrew Mathias has returned to teach maths at the school.
