Why school shape up?

The GOOD news: In 2016, H.E John Pombe Magufuli declared free education for all primary school students and urged all parents to send their children to school. The school enrollment increased drastically

The NOT-SO-GOOD news: The education system is now struggling to deliver quality education. The schools are overcrowded, high teacher pupil ratio and inadequate learning facilities and resources. Therefore, this is compromising the future of the students who are already from disadvantaged communities - majority of the students are from low income families as those with resources opt for private schools.

The INITAITIVE: The Rotary Club of Dar es Salaam - Mikocheni is on a mission to give the young people from poor neighborhoods a shot at a successful future life by improving their access to quality primary school education.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
