Thank you for your donation.
It is because of donors like you that the Rafiki Village Project has
been able to accomplish so much to help Dumbeta Ward. In 2020 we have ambitious plans, but with
your help we can accomplish them. These
are the projects that the community has identified as their highest
priorities. The first project we will be
focused on is the completion of a partially constructed classroom at Gichbord
Primary School. Like many public schools
in Tanzania it is challenged by extreme overcrowding. There are currently 372 students crowed into only four
classrooms. Next we will be working on raising funds to connect Lamay Primary
School to the public water supply. This will
involve stalling a 1.5 miles water line to the school and will be similar to
the Gijega water project we completed in 2016.
It will great when the students don’t have to spend classroom hours
hauling water. Finally, we are hoping to
begin working on building a labor/maternity ward at Dumbeta Dispensary. This will provide a private space for women
to labor, give birth and rest after delivery. Currently infants are being born
in exam rooms with other patients coming and going. We will also be continuing are quarterly
stipends to all five schools in the ward and to the dispensary. All this takes money, so please give generously.
