Nursery School (Kigoma)
"Provide access to education to the children of the most disadvantaged families of the Kichangachui community, in the Ujiji neighborhood (Kigoma, Tanzania) ''
It is a joint project of KARIBIA and the local NGO LEARN N'PLAY for the construction of a totally free school for 96 children from 3 to 6 years old from families without resources of the humble neighborhood of Kichangachui in Kigoma (Tanzania), which consists of 3 classrooms, teachers' room, toilets, kitchen, dining room, warehouse, playground, ..., where to teach classes, provide all the necessary educational and recreational equipment, and where to serve a daily lunch that meets basic nutritional needs.
In July 2021, we began the construction of the first of the 3 classrooms, and once it was finished, after the avalanche of requests to enroll the children of the neighborhood (in one week more than 100 families requested to enroll their children), in September 2021 , and thanks to the awareness of our followers, we obtained the funds for the construction of the second classroom that was completed in October 2021.
The aim of this school is to incorporate the early childhood training process to all these children who do not have access to early educational stimulation, since their families cannot afford the expenses required by other schools at that age (in Kigoma only a little more 20% of children between the ages of 3 and 6 have access to some type of education).
The sustainability of the school is foreseen with the operation of a business for the processing and commercialization of organic honey and in this way, KARIBIA also contributes to the empowerment of local communities and their economic growth.
