Over the next five years, we will continue to improve the educational environment in schools around Babati

Our Development Targets

By 2022, we want the schools we work with in Babati to be unrecognisable from how they were at the start. This can only be achieved with the combined efforts of both LLT and the schools. 

Our partner schools aim to achieve the following over the next five years:

  1. Classroom sizes rarely exceed 50 students.
  2. Book ratios never fall below 1 book per 3 students.
  3. Attendance levels remain above 90%.
  4. Pass rates to secondary school are above 75%.
  5. Toilets are of WHO SWASH standards.
  6. Students undertake termly hand washing training
  7. All students are fed by the community
  8. Kitchens have fuel-efficient stoves
  9. Schools have a tree nursery and planting schedule
  10. Schools have permanent goalposts for football and netball
  11. All buildings and assets are maintained by the community
  12. School enterprise programmes generate profit to contribute to school running costs
  13. Schools have good water security
  14. Schools have adequate teacher accommodation
  15. Schools should invoke their exit strategy

Different schools need different development models, subject to their available resources and their locations.

As such, we have developed long-term and short-term partnership models for the next five years.

 

Long-Term partnerships with Schools

Our long-term partnerships work hand in hand with rural communities to develop a school that can contribute to its running costs, reducing its dependency on the local government and community. All the while, as dependency decreases, academic performance should increase.

The long-term projects require a Memorandum of Understanding between all stakeholders. Certain terms and conditions of engagement need to be agreed, including community contributions, participation, establishment and running of a school meal programme, and agreement to fund asset maintenance.

Short-term partnerships

Short-term partnerships focus on addressing the immediate and urgent needs of mostly urban schools.

Due to their urban locations, our self-sustaining schools model is not applicable to these schools. However, their urgent need for improvements remains the same. 

These schools also require community contributions and participation, and we will be advising them on how to maintain their assets through planned management and community engagement.
