Project details

Ukengee Foundation Solar-powered computer labs, Mbekenyera en Liwale, Tanzania, 2012-2013
The Ukengee foundation is creating solar-powered computer labs at secondary schools in the Lindi district in Tanzania. Following a successful pilot at two secondary schools in 2009, it is now the foundation's goal to equip 35 computer labs at secondary schools in Lindi over the next 10 years. Ukengee also takes care of maintenance and teacher training. The foundation wants to improve the quality of all secondary education in the Lindi district. The computer labs are open to the local community and are also used for non-students. The Turing Foundation will contribute to the realization of two computer labs, one in Mbekenyera (875 students), and one in Liwale (623 students). Including these two new labs, Ukengee will reach a total of 8,000 people.

The Turing Foundation will donate a total of € 30,000 for the realization of the two computer labs in Mbekenyera and Liwale. see also:

Rhotia Valley Marera Primary School Project, Tanzania, 2012
In Tanzania, the Rhotia Valley Foundation offers shelter for 36 orphans in three family homes, and uses a tourist lodge as an environment for a learning and employment project generating income for the family homes. The foundation also focuses on the improvement of the quality of education at Marera primary School, teaching 430 children. In 2011, school buildings have been renovated, school books were purchased, and teachers were trained how to implement laptops in education in light of the One Laptop per Child program. For 2012, extra teaching material is needed. The school would also like to offer a school breakfast and invest in a vegetable garden and livestock, the profit of which can be used for the realization of the school breakfast.

The Turing Foundation will be supporting both the school breakfast and investments in the vegetable garden and livestock with a contribution of € 15,000 in 2012. see also:

Terre des Hommes Teacher Training, Kenia en Tanzania, 2010-2011
In Kenya and Tanzania, Terre des Hommes is working with local partners to improve the quality of secondary education at government schools. Teachers are being trained in modern teaching methods, exam methods and the subjects mathematics, geography, chemistry and English. In Kenya 100 teachers will be trained over a period of 4 years, starting with two-day modules throughout the year that are repeated and elaborated on every year. In Tanzania, 40 teachers will be trained every year during a three-week summer course.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 27,000 to the project.

Update july 2011: The project's outcome has been disappointing. In Mara, Tanzania for example, only 20 teachers have been trained instead of 40, and teacher training in Turkana, Kenya were given by local teachers instead of professionals from Nairobi. As a result, the costs have turned out to be lower than was previously expected, so our donation has been lowered from € 27,000 to € 11,284. see also: Other teacher training projects
