Jenga Jumiuya is currently raising funds to build several primary school structures at the Nengiloriti School in the Monduli area of rural Tanzania.
Aim: The community of Nengiloriti has already raised funds internally and constructed one classroom and teacher’s office to start this project. Our hope is that we can continue their efforts with the construction of at least 2 other classrooms as well as a toilet building this year, and additional classrooms and other structures next year and beyond.
Cost: The project is expected to cost $30,000 for the initial Phase I, outlined above.
As with all projects facilitated by Jenga Jumuiya, a named that means “Building Community” in Swahili, the Nengiloriti School Project is borne from the needs of the local community.
The school will serve the villages of Nengiloriti, Lorkisale, Engorika, Naalarami, Embarurwai and Moita, a population of roughly 15,000 in total. The land for the school — more than 20 hectares — has been donated by the local villages and is located 27km from the main road. The next nearest school is roughly 15km away.
Initially about 750 children will benefit directly from the project. While indirectly, the project will benefit further generations, the parents and relatives of these children, and the outlying communities surrounding the school.
The project was requested specifically by the community with the hope that by giving their children an opportunity to excel in life through education, the well-being of the community as a whole would improve, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty that currently exists.
Our Process: As with all Jenga Jumuiya projects, we will be working closely with the community to complete this project. The village has donated a significant plot of land for this project and will also help to provide the sand, gravel, and labor required for the construction.
