News from Ifakara

We have finished all of the painting work at Mang’ula Primary School. The last two nights we have camped at Udzungwa Primary School (Jo finally got to use his solar shower!) and have been working hard to get the classrooms completed. 150 Tanzanian Scouts joined us for activities yesterday, including stretcher races, boules, football, knots and team work challenges. There was then a massive campfire in the evening where we joined in with singing, dancing and clapping along. Ruairi definitely won the prize for best dancer! Tonight we are having a rest in a hotel in Ifakara, just had chicken and chips for lunch. Tomorrow is back to project work, we have 4 days to complete everything!

Mangula Primary School

Yesterday was spent at Mangula Primary School. They had two classrooms and an office with rotten woodwork. We funded for this to be replaced. Now our efforts are going into painting the walls. Yesterday we managed the first coat of whitewash and one of the blackboards, today we will finish the second coat and the other two blackboards.
GCSE results came through yesterday, all did great – well done team!
