Mangi Sabas und Mawella Secondary School
Supply of text books and laboratory equipment
In collaboration with Mathew Tillya and our partner organisation in Tanzania "Community Secondary Education Support" (COSES), we've purchased and supplied text books, sports equipment, maps and globes covering the needs of more than 750 students at Mangi Sabas Secondary and Mawella Secondary School. In addition to that, we've also provided the entire laboratory equipment for Mangi Sabas Secondary School: So far it was only possible to teach Science in a theoretical way. No practical exercises and experiences were possible. Thus all students failed to finish school with excellent exams, no wonder, the grades depend 50% on practical exercises!

Next comes the laboratory equipment:
Secure storage of chemicals in a container and distribution supervised by professional teachers
Preparation of practical exercises
First practical exercises - this is about the smell of a chemical
Steven Emmanuel Ringo
Steven (14) has been attending school for nine years and
has five years of his education left to complete.
His favourite subject is physics and his goal is to become
an engineer when he grows up, as he recognises there’s an engineering
skills gap in Tanzania.
The budding engineer lives with his father, mother and two
brothers.His family face the daily challenge of finding enough food to
eat and poor household facilities, which unfortunately
is common in Tanzania.
When he’s not in school, he’s busy helping his family out
with daily chores or kicking a football around with his friends, another passion of his.
Steven says People help People - One World's help has made a
real impact on his life, improving his fitness, wellbeing and overall
academic performance at school.
Prisla Stephen Lyimo
Prisla (16) lives with her mum and dad and three brothers.
She has been attending school for 11 years.
Her favourite subject is biology, as it is her dream to
become a doctor.
Her family, like many, is dealing with the scarcity
of available clean water and Prisla is required to make long, gruelling
reach her school every day.
When she’s not in school, she has to help with family
duties such as cooking, washing and fetching water
alone, which can pose a
safety risk – as well as finding time for homework and reading.
She believes the support of People help People - One World has
“helped us to improve my academic performance with effective teaching
and learning as well as improving the fitness of me and my fellow
Mathew Tillya, Director of COSES echoes Prisla’s comment
and believes access to education supplies is vital for the
future success of the country: “We strongly believe that the future of
this country lies in the hands of quality education provided in
secondary schools. Science technology subjects are vital subjects for
countries, like Tanzania, to develop and bring considerable economic
progress, yet the region’s schools don’t have the equipment for
pupils to complete the full curriculum and take exams.
The future is bright and we look forward to developing our
nation in to the 21st century.
We aim to be remembered as the people who made an effort to
develop our country, for our future generations.”
