GIEKURUM LAMBU ‘G-LAMBU’ GIRLS DORMITORY

GIEKURUM LAMBU ‘G-LAMBU’ GIRLS DORMITORY

This project is for a remote Secondary School in the Karatu District. Girls drop out rate there is over 75% percent by their 3rd year of school. This is due to various factors, including the long distance they must travel each day to school. Studies have shown extreme differences in retention rates and higher performance rates of girls who stay in School Dormitory facilities during the week. When surveyed if they would like the chance to stay in a Dormitory during the school week , the current girls at the school voted 100% “YES! “. This project is using Local and Sustainable Building techniques, locally sourced compressed earth bricks, and other sustainable and eco friendly building techniques. The most exciting part of this project is that the G Lambo community is committed to assisting with the building process of the dormitory. They have already contributed to building classrooms at the school and proven their support for the future of their children. Remote communities like this get little or no tourism visits, thus are completely lacking in outside funding. Please help us make this community dream a Reality! Your Kind Support and Donations will make all the difference.

KIO KIT PROGRAM

In response to the library needs and requests by teachers at Ganako for increased assistance with online learning opportunities,. KEF plans to fund Educational programs with Kio Kits.   The content contains the official Tanzanian educational curriculum and can be downloaded and used offline, which is important due to the high cost of internet in Karatu. This program is already in place in various schools in the District with great success.

It is an affordable way to bring eLearning to many students. It also allows students to access and learn from the internet, and to gain the research and computer skills they will require for higher education and use in the modern working world.
