Village Education Project Kilimanjaro is improving primary education by training and supporting teachers, providing equipment and materials, and working with communities to assist schools and pupils.
Children are leaving primary school with an insufficient education to equip them for further studies or future life. Particularly important is a sound knowledge of mathematics and of the English language as all further education is in English.
Teachers lack subject knowledge and teaching methods, and a shortage of teaching materials to be able to provide a quality education. Only long-term work can bring lasting change, so that as many pupils as possible benefit from an improved education.
VEPK is providing weekly training for primary school teachers, head masters and the community in three village primary schools. In addition, VEPK is working with 10 other primary schools providing equipment and training seminars.
Basic education is the key to any lasting development for rural communities, and that is what Village Education Project Kilimanjaro seeks to improve.
