Description:
This is a project in Tanzania to build a dormitory and hostel for children to encourage them to attend and stay at Choba Primary School. Without a hostel, children sleep on the classroom floors. Results from the exams are very positive and all children have passed; their results are in the top 22% in the country even though the majority of children live in mud huts. Support is also provided for the hostel and school by the District Commissioner, who has agreed to pay for food for the children for a month.

This is a very well run and well established school with strong potential.
