Aspire to Africa 2015
The fifth annual trip and the start of a long term project on Tanzania’s east coast.
Our team, made up of eight intrepid teachers and sports coaches, kicked off stage one of the Buyuni One Primary School project. With a focus on the development of teaching and learning, the team worked tirelessly to engage teachers and pupils in an array of curriculum subjects, namely maths, english, physical education, science and art.
Eight days of hard work was supported by the donation of exercise books and sports equipment from Aspire Sports Trust. The £3,500 worth of resources resulted in every child having their own exercise book during lessons. Stark contrast from a 3:1 book to child ratio!
An important element of the 2015 trip was to also gage further information on the schools infrastructure problems and how the project can provide effective solutions. Sanitation, a reliable water source, power, the teaching and learning environments and teachers accommodation are all major problems that securely effect the children’s education. With the help of our friends at WTS we were successful in finalising our plans to help enhance Buyuni One Primary School by 2018.
