Zeze Secondary School has never been at the top since its first graduation in 2008 at region level examinations prepared for all government schools in Kigoma region. That has become possible for the first time in September 2019 after the lights and food security to the households and the school. There has been gradual improvement in performances of various areas at Zeze since we commenced supporting students and the households with solar lights and agriculture improvements. The solar lights improved time for studying while improved food security at family levels improved settlement of families in supporting education.
Access to water has been another key success that has improved education level at Zeze Secondary School. Water has made possible to reduce time spent on collecting water that made possible for extra studying and access to solar light by the students. Also water has improved health and sanitation which both impacted education at Zeze secondary school.
Nhiga Mwandu the head teacher at Zeze Secondary School proclaiming a secret of his school success at the meeting says; “Proud of solar lights, clean and safe water, food security and practical science facilities which have been donated to my school. The school itself was not to accomplish such a great mission however that became possible after acknowledged cooperation from Mboni ya Vijana and their partners. We are the best school now in Kigoma region among the government schools.” Nhiga added, the government is now recognizing our efforts to put on education for the best future. For the area with no grid electricity, solar cells electricity are plenty alternative to lead this achievement at this level.

He got an opportunity to tell what he think has made his student the best form four girl student to September 2019 and here is his narration; “I didn’t think that would have been happen before but I see it without doubt that, the increase of food and income security to my family has enabled me access to services for my daughter. I got a solar light from Mboni ya Vijana for my student and she does well as it increased her time for studying. I wish the solar lights and food security could reach more people to benefit like my family”.
Youth camp took place at Zeze village from 29th July to 17th August 2019 bringing youth from various regions and Britain to share skills and knowledge on technical and entrepreneurial matters. Zeze is off grid village heavily depends on solar and other energy. During the camp, participants were supported by solar lights and charging. Marko says; “solar lights are very important source of power to rely since it is clean and affordable. We would have been in dark and unable to charge electronic devices if we would not have solar lights. I personally acknowledge the idea of having alternative light source for the nigh. He said”
Electricity is real a vital development tool that need to be considered supplied to people for both economical and social development especially to those areas with no power like Zeze village.
