Village Africa needs to raise £9000 to provide 450 desks for primary schools. £20 buys a desk and the planting of two trees.
There is a severe shortage of desks in the primary schools and many children sit on the floor which can be dusty or muddy depending on the weather. This leads to poor concentration and poor handwriting.
Village Africa wants to provide desks to Milingano Primary School, Kweulasi Primary School and Kwembalazi Primary School.
The desks will be made by local carpenters in Tanzania, thus providing much needed employment.
For every desk, Village Africa will plant one timber tree and one cash crop (eg cloves).
After the huge success of Village Africa’s Ambulance Appeal, we hope supporters will like this appeal and want to help.
Groups donating one desk or more will be listed on our website if they wish and will receive a certificate of thanks.
Village Africa has a good track record of working with schools in the area. It has provided classrooms, school toilets, school stationery and teaching volunteers. In the past it made 80 desks for Milingano Primary School and 11 for Yamba Primary School.
