Summary

In Zanzibar, nursery school attendance is compulsory for a child to be accepted into primary school. However, all of the local nursery schools are community-run and do not receive any funding from the Department of Education. Teachers are left to pay for resources on their own, often time leaving no room for classroom updates to make it a safe and secure environment. This project focuses on three main improvements: teaching & resources, health & well-being, and renovation & maintenance.

Challenge

Due to the low standard of living in Jambiani & lack of funding, families teachers, and schools financially struggle to provide children with the adequate tools, resources and updated classrooms. Students often arrive at school with not having dinner and many students often get sick or come to schools with coughs & colds and being in such a small space, germs spread very quickly. Also, most toilets are unsanitary and there is limited access to water & soap to stop the spreading of germs.

Solution

Through three main focuses: health & wellbeing, teaching resources & support, and renovation and construction, we will be able to create further educational and health opportunities. We will provide further cooking resources, provide toothbrushes & toothpaste to increase dental hygiene, as well as soap for the Washy, Washy Scrub, Scrub program. Additionally, we will renovate the schools, provide educational materials and provide food parcels to the teachers to relieve financial stress.

Long-Term Impact

We will ensure students are developing and learning so they can progress to primary school and don't get left behind. The educational resources will empower teachers to give students impactful & creative lessons based on our English Program. The renovations will provide funds to protect schools from rain & flooding and reducing health risks. Finally, the health programs will make a long term impact in regards to dental hygiene and proper hand washing and sanitation.
