Kimnyake Secondary School, Tanzania

Kimnyake Secondary School, Tanzania

In the Arusha region in Tanzania, the Kimnyake Secondary school has been waiting for upgrades for many years, after being let down by countless other non profit organizations. Since the school’s construction 25 years ago, there are many defects and dangers that the harsh climate has brought on, as well as the growing number of students.

Issues range from lack of adequate toilets and classes - only 8 filthy latrines for 550 adolescent girls and 90 students in some classes - to structural and environmental concerns that have left parts unsafe for use. We are now taking on the project to make the school safe to learn and upgrade it with proper windows and roofing in response to the dust and rain that often stops lessons.

The first improvement being made is the girls toilet block, that will be competed in May/June 2019. This will provide more latrines as well as sanitary resources for the adolescent girls at school. The structure has 12 rooms, of which one is a hygienic exchange room for sanitary napkins and another room will be a special toilet for disabled people.  The remaining 10 rooms will have Asian type toilets. 

The video below is from our research trip to hear from the teachers and students about the needs of their school.

Follow our progress on social media as the project will be completed by the end of the year.

Bulingtar Primary School Wing, Nepal

Bulingtar Primary School Wing, Nepal

In collaboration with Indigo Children’s Fund and The Nemeth Group


On December the 13th 2018 we broke ground on a new school wing in Bulingtar, Nepal. The school was very badly damaged in the earthquake of 2015 and has been overlooked by government and international aid agencies ever since.

The children were beginning to go elsewhere to school and the teachers were starting to leave due to the poor working conditions.

GROUND BREAKING DAY, DEC 2018

The village is in a very remote area that has serious struggles with their economy. We have made agreements with the local government who have formally pledged to improve trade routes in and out of the village to its capital city of Pokhara.

The village is rich in produce such as oranges however lacks any direct way of taking these to market. So in a mutual agreement we are building the school and the government is helping with the economy of the village and ensuring good teachers return with fair salaries.

We are constructing this project with the financial support of Indigo Children’s Fund and The Nemeth Group.
