Luhira Primary School is a public school located in Ruvuma region in Songea district. The school accommodates students’ normal students and those with special needs such as vision, hearing impairment and albinism. The Visually Impaired pupils have been attending classes with other normal pupils and thus face difficult to catch up in their studies due to visual impairment. In order to enable these beneficiaries study in a conducive environment, Social Action Trust Fund(SATF), took initiative to raise fund on behalf of Luhira Primary school via the GlobalGiving platform.
The fundraising period took place from 10th to 28th June,2019 whereby a total of TZS 1,786,004(USD 780) was utilised. The fund was thus used to purchase a total of 8 brand new Sony voice recorders-ICD PX 470. The 8 voice recorders were handed over to Luhira Primary School on 21st October,2019 in the presence of beneficiaries and teachers from Luhira Primary School.
This report, presents the progress of the proejct after the handingover the 8 voice recorders to Luhira school.

1) It has motivated the Visual Impaired pupils to attend classes,
2) The Voice recorders has enabled pupils with blindness to be self-reliant (i.e. not dependent on other pupils for revisions) and able to catch up during class session by having a chance to revise the sessions after classes,
3) The voice recorders have assisted the pupils to recite and write well english vocabularies clearly.,
