Established in 2007, Chaenda Secondary School provides Grade 8 – 12 level education and lies between the two communities of Endashang’wet and Changarawe. While it can in theory serve both communities, the school is not close to any of its five feeder primary schools, and very few of the learners live close to the school. When Africa Foundation first partnered with the school in 2014, it had a total of 9 classrooms and admin block, all built by the community. The community have been focusing their support on constructing science laboratories at the school. As of 2012, it became mandatory in Tanzania for all secondary schools to have purpose-built laboratories in order to effectively deliver the science syllabus. Funds were raised through the community and in 2014 and some construction on this project began. However to this day, the community have not had capacity to complete the classrooms or purchase equipment for the science syllabus. Having met the immediate need of ablutions, Africa Foundation would now like to support the school in the completion and equipping of three science laboratories.
Not far from the Ngorongoro Conservation area in Tanzania, the communities of Endashang’wet and Changarawe are completely off the beaten track. The communities are poorly served by the Government and the households mainly live on the farming of maize and sunflower oil. There are primary schools in each community, and both are served by the nearest trading post of Karatu, approximately 5 km away. Environmentally fragile and chronically food insecure, rural households in Tanzania tend to face recurrent hunger periods and struggle to access a variety of food.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Africa Foundation was able to support the school, and constructed a kitchen inclusive of 2 industrial size energy-saving cooking units and necessary kitchen utensils. A dining hall was also provided, furnished with 36 tables and 72 six-seater benches. As enrolment at the school increased pressure on the ablutions, that had been built 10 years previously, was immense and in 2018 Africa Foundation raised funds to build 10 new ablutions for the school.
