Help build two more classrooms at Mango school

Everyone should have access to quality education, as should Tanzanian youth. Unfortunately, Tanzanians often lose their opportunity to study after primary school, as they do not speak English, the language of instruction in secondary schools. This is illustrated by the 50% nation-wide dropout rate from secondary schools. 

LESCOTA, a registered Tanzanian NGO, is attempting to improve this situation by building Mango school, a pre and primary school in Matekela, Ruvuma region, Tanzania. Mango school will provide facilities for local youth in Matekela to learn English. Thus, more Matekelan youth will be able to participate in secondary and higher education.

However, we need your help to finish the construction of Mango school!

What exactly are we building?

In order to get registered with the government as a Pre & Primary English medium school and being able to serve  320 local students expected at Mango school, we are constructing two more classrooms along side the followings completed buildings:-

● 6 classrooms
● 4 staff rooms
● 12 latrines pits
● 1 dormitory block

What are the costs of the project?

The costs of the construction of two more classrooms is $7,000
How will donations be used?

Since LESCOTA’s team consists only of non-paid volunteers, we will use all donations received to cover the costs of two more classrooms at Mango school. In case we receive more donations than the target, the excess funds will be used to cover the operational costs of Mango school.

What are the guarantees that your money will reach the youth in need?

LESCOTA  is a renowned organization in Tanzania. All of our previous projects can be viewed on our webpage:  

Furthermore, the United Nations recognizes our project as well. The UN supports us by allocating an online volunteer to assist us with various tasks.

LESCOTA is entirely run by volunteers and is currently led by Maurus Nchimbi, a graduate from the St.john's University of Tanzania. Further information on LESCOTA is accessible on our webpage:
