Summary

An Earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter Scale struck Bukoba area in NW Tanzania, on 10th September 2016. 17 people died and over 1200 houses, hospitals, schools and churches were reduced to rubble, including projects we have been supporting for many years. Many roads have also been destroyed. For a country as poor as Tanzania it is a major blow and people desperately need your help now.

Challenge

Schools that we have been supporting for many years have been severely damaged by the earthquake. Classrooms have been turned to rubble, the limited equipment destroyed, teachers houses made uninhabitable. Water tanks supplying vital water for clinics are cracked and unusable. The damage is widespread and already extremely poor communities are overwhelmed.

Solution

We will work with our local partners on the ground and the local government to ensure that schools can reopen as soon as possible so students can resume their education.

Long-Term Impact

Currently we are working with two government secondary schools that have been particularly badly affected, meaning over 1000 students are not accessing the education they are entitled to, which is their only means of escaping the extreme poverty of their communities.
