Subutuni Classroom Construction
Subutuni is a coastal lowland village in Tanga with a population of around 3,000 people. Almost every family here is living below the poverty line due to the collapse of the local fishing industry. The nearest school is more than four kilometres away, which is too far for small children to walk the journey to regularly attend.
Initially we’re building a new classroom for the village that will be used as a preschool for children aged between 5 and 8 years old who cannot walk long distances to attend school. Ultimately, we want to establish a primary school at Subutuni that will benefit the entire community by boosting education development in the area.
