I am Campaigns Manager and a Project Officer for Tanzania Development Trust and have visited Zeze four times. I have been so impressed with the dedication of the teachers and students and so, together with our local representative, Benedicto Hosea, who lives in the village, we are trying to raise money to install solar power at the school. This will allow them to run study sessions after dark, use a donated raspberry pi computer and take advantage of an offer to install free satellite broadband internet in the school in September. They could then use online materials and communicate via email with their partner school in the UK.

I met the students at Zeze school in April. It's a rural day school serving poor subsistence farmers' childen. Solar power was their priority so that they can study at night.
