Our work Our schools Mitengo Primary School Mitengo School is half way between the EdUKaid offices in Mikindani and the local town of Mtwara. Renovation work was completed and the pre-primary class opened in 2015 thanks to funding from British and Foreign Schools Society, The Marr Munning Trust and Charles Hayward Foundation. In 2018 there are 97 pre-primary children and 487 primary children enrolled in the school The head teacher says “Our children are prepared for school now; they are excited about pre-primary, and prepared for first standard. We have had a volunteer teacher before EdUKaid so children have been introduced to S1 softly, but now pre-primary is bigger and better… Children are ready to read and count from a young age – they are ahead.” “We can see a difference in the children from before the class was open. The children can count, write, draw, sing songs. We are hopeful for the future, and happy.” says a parent Do you feel passionate about children and education?
