When you plant a seedling you’re never sure how fast it will grow, or what shape it will branch into and what growth obstacles it will need to overcome. Mission Tanzania is such a seedling, but a few short years after its planting, Mission Tanzania has grown in many unexpected and wonderful ways, and will continue to do so with your support and enthusiasm.
Over the past four years:
Electricity and water systems for the 400 students have been partially installed with a new 400-foot deep well.
Work on the first set of boy’s & girl’s dormitories is complete.
The first of seven new staff duplexes is nearly completed.
The multi-purpose hall & kitchen are used every day for classes and meals.
The administration and teacher preparation building is complete.
The foundation has been laid for a new science laboratory.
The first building of four new classrooms is up and waiting for a roof to be built.
Sustainable plots for growing corn, beans and vegetables are underway as is a pine tree farm for lumber production. Land has been designated for an orchard of fruit trees with the end goal of helping the school become self-sufficient.
BOMALANG’OMBE SECONDARY SCHOOL – This secondary school has become an important focus. In 2007, a Mano Amiga team began helping install a water system to provide clean water and install poles for the electrical system and foundations for new buildings. Mission teams have helped complete the electrical system, boys dorm, pouring floors, finishing walls, and building windows. Subsequent groups have helped build dormitories and classrooms.
