To contribute to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all (SDG 4)
The "MAMMIE III" project represents the 5th intervention of those previously promoted by ACRA and WeWorld (former Intervita) in cooperation with SHIPO and Njombe Development Office.
During that first phase (2009-2011), the main focus was the support to the provision of a safe and conducive environment for primary education. The programme carried out some renovation works in the schools and provided school equipment to the targeted schools. Moreover, trainings for teachers were carried out in collaboration with the Education Department of Ludewa District.
During the second phase (2012-2014), interventions in pre-primary and primary schools of the area were extended to 13 schools. The objective was to contribute to a safe living and learning environment and, together with the District Authorities; trainings for teachers were organized in order to support the provision of a better quality education.
The third intervention entitled "MAMMIE" (Mawengi Mlangali and Milo Integrated Education) started in 2014 under the direct leadership of SHIPO. 7 new schools were added to the project reaching a total of 20 primary and pre-primary schools in Mawengi, Milo, Mlangali and Lubonde wards (Mlangali ward fragmented in 2015 in to the Current Mlangali and Mawengi wards).
The first phase (Mammie I) was implemented from October 2014 to September 2017. The second phase (Mammie II) was implemented from October 2017 to September 2020.
MAMMIE III represents the third phase (2020-2023) and will target 24 pre-primary and primary schools in the district of Ludewa (four schools are added to those that were targeted by the Mammie II project).
