Natema Primary School
Terrawatu has been partnered with Natema Primary School in Arusha region of Tanzania since 2002; supporting students, constructing classrooms, and assisting teachers with their work to educate the next generation. The school serves close to 1,000 children in this marginalized community during each school year, including a number of orphans.
In the past 15 years Terrawatu has:
- Found sponsors for over a dozen female students at Natema to support their education.
- Constructed a five-room building including three large classrooms, one computer lab and a teacher’s office.
- Outfitted the computer lab and in November 2017, officially deployed the first KIO KIT (with 40 tablets) and 2 laptops for teachers and administrative use.
Support for this project has come from Google Gives, the Prigmore Charitable Fund, individual donors and friends of Natema around the world.
In 2018, Terrawatu is providing more laptops for teacher use, supporting the IT teachers who instruct students with the KIO KIT technology, and assisting the school with their continuing quest to improve student performance on national examinations.
Do go to our Giving Page to help support these efforts.
If successful, Terrawatu will deploy additional mobile technology to our partner Primary Schools in the region in 2019.
