THE INTERVENTION

HARDWARE INTERVENTION: This include construction of schools building i.e classrooms,latrines, dinning halls and kitchens. Not only that but also provision of equipment/ teaching and learning materials to the schools i.e. books, furniture and other tools.

1. CONSTRUCTION AND REHABILITATION OF INFRASTRUCTURES

Despite higher pupils' enrollment in primary schools in Tanzania, the country is still faced with problem of inadequate infrastructures. This has a huge impact on improving the quality of education especially in rural areas, which is one on the main objectives of this project. As part of the implementation MAMMIE project works on construction and rehabilitation of different school buildings.

2. PROVISION OF EQUIPMENT AND LEARNING MATERIALS

Shortage of textbooks and other teaching/learning materials has affected education sector. In an initiative aimed at providing quality education to Pre and Primary school pupils which is the main objective of this project we come up with the learning/ teaching materials provision scheme. This initiative seeks to counter the shortage of resources in the 20 schools that we we are working.

3. WATER SUPPLY, SANITATION AND HYGIENE

Improving sanitation is crucial because children's ability to learn may be affected by inadequate of water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in several ways. As a result of that, pupils can be exposed to contaminants that cause them to suffer from different disease thus will definitely affect their school attendance and performances. We have worked on improving/constructing water supply, sanitation and hygiene infrastructures to make sure that all the 20 schools have access to the above mentioned services

SOFTWARE INTERVENTION

1. TEACHER'S TRAINING AND SUPPORT.

Great teachers help create great pupils!

We train and support teachers, school managements and schools committees,because teachers are expected to use the best practices and strategies to improve the quality of education. If teachers are well trained and highly motivated, learning will be enhanced.

2. AWARENESS AND SENSITIZATION ACTIVITIES IN NUTRITION, GENDER, CHILD RIGHTS, HIV/AIDS AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH IN 20 SCHOOLS



MEASURING RESULTS AND SHARING EXPERIENCES

In the end, we expect to obtain better learning and teaching environment in all beneficiary schools as well as to improve both the quality of education services and academic results of the pupils.
