The Bandari Project

Just before heading off to Tanzania, we saw some TV documentaries about schools there. We decided that we would take some school supplies (notebooks, pencils and some toys for the children. (This is part of Marilyn’s commitment to supporting communities from profits). The Bandari Project School in Mto wa Mbu was just 10 minutes fromKilimamoja Lodge, so we arranged to visit on our way back to Arusha.

The school is funded by Rotary Club in Port Fairy and by private donations. 

“Government” Primary schools in Tanzania teach in Swahili while secondary schools teach in English.This creates a barrier to some students, especially in poorer communities, from progressing to High School. The Bandari Project School (as do other charity funded schools) teaches in English.
