Yamba Classrooms Appeal

Village Africa is raising money to build two new classrooms for Yamba Primary School.

The school was built in the 1980s and two of the classrooms are in URGENT need of replacement.

The old classrooms have been well used and have led to lots of academic success.  Past students have gone on to secondary school, vocational training and even higher education.

There are 308 pupils, aged 4 - 14 years old.  They learn Maths, Science, Kiswahili, English, History, Geography, Civics, General Studies and Sport.

The new classrooms will be built by Village Africa's all Tanzanian team of builders and carpenters.  Many building materials will be bought locally (eg stones, sand and water) and this will give lots of employment to men and women in the village.

Village Africa has a good track record of building classrooms in this remote area.  It has built 14 so far!

Please help by donating or organising a fundraising event so we can build the classrooms as soon as possible.

Thank you
Caroline and the Village Africa team
 

Please note that Village Africa treats Gift Aid as unrestricted funds.

If for any reason Village Africa cannot build these classrooms or the donations exceed £16,000, we will use the money for our other health and education work.
