New school for Ngurdoto Village


Excellent news from Ngurdoto Village, where our Watoto Foundation Kiboko Lodge is situated!

On Monday 11 July 2016 a new school will be opened here. The primary school will be able to host 850 children from the surroundings and has been built in cooperation with the villagers, district officers, Arusha region and BAM International. BAM is a Dutch company working on the extension of Kilimanjaro Airport. The project was coordinated by Noud van Hout, one of our WF founders, who has already built and renovated 18 schools in Tanzania!

Also the students at Makumira VTC have been working hard to construct the furniture for the school, such as tables, chairs, desks and doors. In addition, 850 BAM green school bags have been tailored in the class room at Makumira, contributing to a successful start of the new school year for the students at Ngurdoto Village Primary School!
