Water for Schools
The water for school’s project will provide boreholes at 14 public primary schools with water supply recently completed at Endamaghai and Mwikantsi. At both schools, children can now access clean water on site.
SMEC employees in our Tanzania office have been actively involved in supporting the project at a local level, helping to conduct surveys to determine the depth of the water table and preparing a cost schedule to support procurement and implementation. The boreholes will provide a safe water supply to support education opportunities for children.
School Improvement Project
The SMEC Foundation and Busbridge Family Generosity Fund have also provided funding for the STC School Improvement Project which will provide support for four schools. The project has the following aims:
- Improve education infrastructure through the construction/renovation of classrooms, toilets and changing rooms
- Provide sufficient equipment and training development to support learning
- Establish health and feeding programs to improve retention rates
To date two classrooms have been renovated at the Gijedabung Primary School in Endakiso, with a pending permit to renovate two more classrooms in 2022. The Ayamango Primary School has also commenced construction of two classrooms helping to expand teaching and learning capacity for local children.
