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.
• create a safe conducive school environment for today!
• improve the quality of education to better our tomorrow!
• inspire a future generation that is ethical founded on ideals of Rotary,one school at a time!
