Mangani Primary School

Mozambique 238 beneficiaries Village of Mangani in ...

Mangani School is a primary school located in the village of Mangani in Tete Province, Mozambique, which is in the southeastern part of Africa. Mangani is near the road to Angonia and is about 200 km from the Malawi-Mozambique border. This part of Mozambique is far from any major cities and is very rural, with the primary occupation being subsistence farming. Mangani School is government-operated with 238 students in 5 classes with 5 teachers going through the 5th grade.

Since there are no latrines, the students must use “the bush” which is unsafe and degrades the environment. There is also no well near the school, forcing the students to get water from the streams nearby. In the dry season, when the streams dry up, the students bring water from their homes for themselves and for the teachers. The water comes from shallow wells dug into dry river beds and is often contaminated by the goats and cattle that graze there
A deep well in the village of Mangani would save many lives and would help the children have more time for school instead of spending most of their days trying to get water for their families. Hygiene education is essential to the well-being of the children and will be facilitated by Sebber Banda, a public health nurse. She will use skits to augment her teaching.
