Transforming Tanzanian schools with Technology


This project helps rural government secondary schools in the poorest areas of Tanzania access educational resources via technology. These schools have few books, a shortage of teachers, particularly in maths and science and often no electricity. Students walk for hours to get to school, to try and fulfill their dream to become tomorrows doctors and teachers. Yet without a good maths and science education they will not succeed. This project provides a cost efficient means of helping them.

Rural government schools in Tanzania suffer from a lack of teachers, particularly in science and maths. They have very few books or educational resources. Motivated students who want to become tomorrows' doctors and teachers cannot succeed without passing exams. They cannot do this without access to the science curriculum.


We provide raspberry pi computers containing the whole maths and science curriculum, along with donated tablets, laptops and phones to access it on. We train teachers and students on the best way to use this to supplement their existing resources to enable students to succeed. We also give solar lights to groups of students enabling them to study together in the evening.

Long-Term Impact

Enabling rural students to access the curriculum and succeed at school will allow them to raise their families out of extreme poverty and transform their communities. It will also help to alleviate the skill shortage in the villages.
