The schools I saw in Tanzania were hard to take. The Uduru Lutheran Parish schools have many students eager to learn, but have limited supplies and resources.
Students wear uniforms, sharp-looking sweaters using colors of the Tanzanian flag: black, green, blue and yellow. Uniforms are required, but many families can hardly afford the tuition. As shown above, it looks like one sweater is expected to last their entire scholastic career, or, at least, passed down many times to younger siblings. The top row are kindergartners, and the bottom two rows are from the primary school.
I’m still processing much of what I saw in Tanzania, but one eye-opening conclusion sifted out very quickly. The schools need help and lots of it: money, teachers and supplies. The kids aren’t starving physically, but educationally, they’re on life support.
