Building Education from Rediscovered Heritage

Through donations and two grants we have reached our target of £25,000.

But you can still donate and enjoy Unique Opportunities
(see below) !

For each additional £900 we will be able to take 3 additional student teachers from the University of Dar Es Salaam to participate in and experience our educational practices.

Heritage is a valuable resource, especially in economically challenged areas.
Collaborating with academics and local teachers, we create educational resources so pupils can learn about their history and heritage. This gives them a sense of identity and pride in their past. It also provides them with valuable tools for their future.

In July I spent 3 weeks in Pangani, Tanzania, visiting schools and talking to teachers - most had little knowledge of the splendid built heritage around them. We discussed which materials would be most appropriate for their pupils; I wanted to be sure that what we produced would be welcomed and used. 

The teachers asked for materials to stimulate and develop pupils' critical thinking skills so they will become reflective enquirers, vital for their progress to higher education.
So, we have planned comprehension exercises, activity sheets and a number of posters, together with teachers' notes and some teacher workshops when we return. 

I also spent a week-end with groups of school-children, walking, talking and sketching the historic buildings. The local NGO, Uzikwasa, wishes to develop this and other programmes for children in their Heritage Cantre, so, on our next trip, we will also be working with their staff to facilitate this.

You can see more about Pangani and it's historic buildings, the schools, as well as the sketches the children produced, here:

We have solid plans ... but none of this will be possible without funding.
