New Partnership: Mshkamono Primary School

Mshkamono Primary School is a government school located in the rural village of Marurani, Arusha.

This school is extremely rural and has no access to fresh drinking water, no electricity and no public transport. The government started building classrooms at the school but have left these unfinished and students are being taught in potentially dangerous conditions.

The local community are 90% Massai Tribe, living in mud huts and sole occupation is tending to their cattle. The community are desperate for their children to have an education to escape extreme poverty.
