We have some exciting updates regarding our progress on the secondary school in Olasiti!
Achieve in Africa recently transfered funds over to our contractor to begin work on making 100 tables and chairs for 100 students at our Secondary School. These tables and chairs will cover seating for two classrooms. The construction is anticipated to take a little under a month to complete. Upon completion, AIA will be sending over funds to complete another 100 tables and chairs for an additional two classrooms.
Prior to receiving support from Achieve in Africa, the village of Olasiti lacked a secondary school. This means that even the brightest and most capable students have been unable to continue past a primary education since there has not been a school in which they can attend near or in the village. The village has managed to build two classrooms from money raised by taxes. Achieve in Africa has worked hard to build the remaining necessary infrastructure so that the school will be recognized as a secondary school by the Tanzanian government and provided with teachers.
The school is now set to open this month to receive its first grade level of students!
Look for pictures and updates in the future as the work continues!
