Mlimboni is one of the small villages in the North of Zanzibar Island. Like many villages in rural areas, there is a shortage of facilities and service delivery is almost non-existent. Mlimboni pre-school was established because the only other primary school close enough was 12 km away. The village chairman rallied support to build an open shaded area for children to use as a pre-school, and upon completing their mandatory pre- school year, the first cohort of pupils were supposed to start attending another primary school, but they were still too young to walk to the other village. Africa Foundation are fundraising to build another block with double classrooms and 36 desks to accommodate the next cohort of children and to allow the current pupils from preschool to move to Grade 1 and for the Grade 1 children to move to Grade 2.
