Mosorec International Academy is located in a rural village in Tarime, Tanzania. The school was built in 2014 and was up and running in January 2015. Plans are to continue to add more classrooms and facilities as well as increase the attendance and retention rates.
There are over 100 students registered, but most of the time, not all children are able to attend school as many families still do not understand the value of educating their children. Other factors also play a role-such as poverty, transportation, cultural norms and rituals, waterborne diseases, etc. The water challenges affect many students’ attendance as the children, especially girls, stay home to help with chores such as fetching water. By having water at the school, we believe this would help the children and the community; hence, increase student attendance and retention.
This project will be a new handwashing station
H2O for Life is not a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) project implementer. We have partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) implementing WASH in Schools projects around the world. Our NGO partners match funds needed for each school project. We also have a generous donor that provides us with an interest-free loan that, along with matching funds, allows for many projects to be started or possibly even completed before total funds have been raised. In rare situations we reserve the right to reallocate funds to alternate project(s).
