Two teachers and 19 students from Yew Chung International School of Hongkong and China recently donated cash and materials worth 4.9 million Tanzania Shilling (4,200 US$) to Mlimani secondary school in Karatu. The money and materials are aimed at improving conditions at the school.

Mr. Lazaro Titus Massay the area’s councilor said two new classrooms have been constructed by the villagers and volunteers in a collaborative effort.

The donations from the students and staff have enabled Mlimani secondary school to almost double the enrolment of students from March next year. The councilor expressed  gratitude to the Chinese visitors for their contributions both in monetary form and in kind.

The Chinese visitors tour was facilitated by a local tour company, Simba Safaris and ZARA Tours’ Highview Hotel. Villagers presented the visitors with traditional  mementos.

The school is located in the arid village of Tloma at the outskirts of Karatu township. Up to April this year, the area had only one secondary school known as Ganago.

The project is ongoing, as more Chinese students will follow up the initial work. The next group is expected to be arriving in January.
