Material and Funds for Construction of Additional Classrooms in Arusha, Tanzania

Requested by

Melchisedec English Medium Nursery School

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Melchisedec English Medium Nursery School is a nursery school in Arusha, Tanzania. We are trying to provide children quality education, especially in English, that will enable them to find a stable occupation, earn a living and provide for themselves, and also enable them to be able to express themselves and communicate fluently with the international community.

English education is also important here as children often have a hard time learning when they move to secondary school. This is because Tanzania government primary schools and nurseries are connected to Swahili secondary schools where lessons are taught in English. We have an English nursery school that helps children build a good foundation in English to prepare them for further studies up to university level. By teaching children English, we aim to alleviate their difficulties in learning and better prepare them for their future.

What is your project and how will it help?

Currently there are 40 children in the school but we hope to cater for at least double that number once it has enough classrooms. We plan to build additional permanent classrooms and install more facilities that will provide a better learning environment for students.

By expanding the school, we believe we will be able to offer English tuition to more children and also adults as we hope to help put parents in a position where they can help their children with their homework.

We also hope to empower the community with English skills in general that will allow them to communicate more fluently with the international community as Arusha is a tourist city and the headquarters of the tourism industry in Tanzania. This will help improve the tourism industry thereby helping business and communities in Arusha flourish.
