MGUTWA SECONDARY & HIGH SCHOOL COMPLEX

Solar lighting has been installed in the teachers office and three classrooms.

Lighting has not , as yet, been installed in the girls dormitory, boys dormitory kitchen buildings and the teachers house.

 

Mgutwa secondary high school has now over 45 students.  These are orphaned and very poor students, who otherwise wouldn’t have an education.  The teachers house, which can provide the needs of up to 4 teachers, has been completed.....more .    The kitchen and food store is nearing completion,  metal window frames and solar lighting being required  to complete.    The boys dormitory and latrines were completed in March.   The dining hall project is on hold at the present time (Sep 2012).  

 

 

WATER DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

Two bore holes have been sunk  recently to ensure that students have access to water for washing clothes, bathing and general cleaning.

 

FUNDRAISING NEWS

Several fund raising events have taken place so far, including a sponsored walk, a coffee morning, a music and dance event and a market stall selling cakes and bric a brac.

 

Fundraising in 2012/2013 is aimed to provide much needed funds for the projects planned for this year and next.  The  priorities include  a reliable water supply to Mgutwa school, solar lighting  for all buildings and pathways and also funds to provide bunk beds and mattresses for the dormitories.  

 

Funds to buy essential medical equipment and consumable supplies to hospitals and clinics.   It is hoped that donors  will respond to the real needs in this area of Tanzania.  The recent inclusion of VirginMoney Giving for raising the necessary funds is the hope for realising the vision outlined under Projects.   

 

 

CHARITY STALL

The charity raised much needed funds at a market stall on Loughborough Market on the  15th September, selling cakes, bric a brac raised over £350 pounds.  

 

Thanks to all who kindly baked cakes and gave a donation on the day.  Plans are in hand for the next market stall on the 25th November (Christmas lights switch on in Loughborough market place).

 

 

DONATIONS

Donations together with fundraising help to pay for the many projects that are ongoing.  The Mgutwa complex project is estimated to cost about  £100,000 and it is hoped that a proportion of this may be raised from donations to the website.
