Golden Aya plans to build an E+STEAM (English, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) school chain, consisting of 3 schools and an education center in a rural area in Arusha, Tanzania. These state-of-the-art eco-friendly facilities will provide free primary, secondary, and high school STEAM education to local disenfranchised school-aged children. We will provide our students with nutritious meals, transportation, and the skills necessary to lead Tanzania into a sustainable future.
Tanzania's government has made several strides to improve its education. However, many families can not afford to send their children to quality schools and 5.1 million children between the ages of 7 and 17 do not attend school at all. Students that do attend public schools face overcrowded classrooms with a 1:83 average teacher-to-student ratio. Additionally, most schools lack the resources and capacity for students to have a hands-on learning experience and use outdated textbooks.
Golden Aya plans to aid Tanzania in achieving its education development goals by constructing a STEM school chain. The eco-friendly facilities will be equipped with solar power, biogas, water well, and rain collection. Students will have the ultimate learning experience with a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:25, a unique curriculum, updated textbooks, hands-on learning, and cross-cultural exercises. These revolutionary schools will be free for students that come from low-income areas.
Students will be able to use their new skills to help improve their country. The schools will also be used as a resource center to help other schools implement STEM into their curriculum. It is Golden Aya's goal to continue to open schools like this around the globe in underprivileged areas. The cross-cultural exercises will foster unity with other countries and can lead to improved diplomacy in the future. As the first of its kind, it can serve as an example of what other schools can model.
