For the children in the Digo community outside Tanga, Tanzania, Africa the thought of going to school was a fantasy. Their parents, struggling to grow crops to feed the family, had no money to send them to the city school. Girls were even less likely to receive an education, as traditional culture kept them working very hard at home. Amani Primary school provides these families with quality education close to home.
One current challenge Amani Primary School is facing is the need for updated technology to help their students learn and expand their skills. Currently the school has a few older computers housed in a room that serves as a library - office - computer lab space. The multi-purpose space is not well configured as a learning space for students. With over 300 students opportunities for productive computer use is very limited. The senior E-Block students at London Christian High have developed a possible solution to this problem - a “Mobile Classroom”. This project involves a shipping container, desks, and furniture to seat 20, white boards, solar powered energy, and computers. The “Mobile Classroom” will be constructed from a 40” steel shipping container, retrofitted with windows, doors, built-in desks and seating, wired for the lighting and computers to be solely run on solar energy. The Mobile Classroom will be built in the LCH shop by students and shipped to Tanga when it’s complete. While this project is already underway, we need additional funding for materials to make fabrication and shipping to Tanzania possible. Any amount of financial gift is helpful and gratefully received. Please consider partnering with us to make this exciting opportunity a reality.
