 The School

The Amani Christian School in Tanzania provides quality education to the underserved and impoverished community in a rural north-east region of Tanzania. The School was established when a Canadian school teacher working with Africa Inland Mission (AIM) partnered with a pastor from the Africa Inland Church of Tanzania (AICT) to serve vulnerable children in the Tanga region. This bustling school now serves almost 300 primary students, with plans for a new high school expected to increase that number substantially!

The Problem

These students are in need of a computer classroom. Without space in the existing school, and just a few old administrative computers, it is impossible for the children to receive any meaningful IT instruction. As such, "the children have been learning about computers theoretically" (Sarah Isack, School Administrator).

Computer skills are important for higher education, for continuous learning, to access public information, and to avail students to new job opportunities.  Addressing poverty at its roots requires that we give students tools to build a new future for themselves and their community.

The Solution

Wanting to make a difference overseas, nine high school students from London, Ontario, each one mentored by a local professional, set off to build a mobile computer classroom for the students in Tanzania out of a 40-foot shipping container! At first they were nervous, but the unwavering support of their teacher kept them moving forward. "What has probably impacted me the most... is that God's faithfulness in this has been unbelievable" said Mr. Rock. As the class gained momentum, the community and local businesses got behind them, donating funds and materials!

The students completed the research, design and build themselves, during a three-hour-a-day class that focuses on completion of large-scale, meaningful projects. "I believe we think too small in education," said Mr. Rock. The excitement is mounting on both sides of this amazing project as it becomes a reality! Without this project, these children would be very unlikely to have the opportunity to develop any meaningful IT skills - skills that will open new career options, inspire new interests or ideas, provide access to life-long learning and online resources, and could forever change the futures of the students and their community.

 

As this project nears completion, the students realize that the children in Tanzania are not the only ones that will be changed. Just as we believe in supporting the long term development and skills of the children we serve, so too we believe in the meaningful participation of young people in our community. We are proud of these students who asked to undertake this ambitious project!
