Coming together is the beginning

Latest Building Plan
Latest Building Plan

Greetings from Midawe,

Early fall is the season when students anxiously prapare for their national exams while we, the founders of Ikirwa line up the funds and resources to begin the anual construction project. It is always a race against the clock, to try and finishe the building under roof before the rains come and finish it in-time for the new school year, which begins in January.

In this manner, over the course of the past 6 years we have completed the construction of 8 classrooms and 3 offices as well as a kitchen and a dining verandah. Yet this year's project is particularly special. Ikirwa School is located in a very beautiful spot, at the very edge of the Midawe village, where the wooded farms begin a gentle climb and transition into the jungle covering the slopes of Mt. Meru. From the far border of the school campus one can look far over the vulcanic plains. The air is clear and the night is filled with the sounds of crickets. It is quiet, safe and peaceful - a perfect spot for a boarding school. Ikirwa School has been open for 6 years and we are finally ready to complete our visiton and make our campus a resident one. Two weeks ago we broke ground for the boys dormitory. Girls will be housed in a converted classroom with access to bathroom and shower. Offering a boarding option will meet the demand we have observed from more affluent Arusha families, who wish to have their kids in a healthy, natural setting away from city traffic and polution. It will also bring much needed cashflow to aid our mission of keeping day school rates affordable for local students, offering scholarships to those in most need, and, most importantly, making the school financially self-sustainable. 

 It was Henry Ford who said, "Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success". We thank you, our dedicated supporters for coming together and staying to help us make this vision a reality.
