A lovely morning was spent with the children of Mbutu Mkwajuni School - a primary school for children between the ages of 4-14 from the surrounding villages - and their headmaster Shaha Mzanda and the Chairman of Kichangani, Omary Mgaza as we delightedly handed over donations for their school.  

Our guest textbooks initiative over the season has raised 730,000 Tsh (approx 335 USD) which afforded the school the benefit of 93 new textbooks, which included valuable teaching aids - so thank you to all our guests who have made such a treasured donation which will be looked after and maintained by the headmaster to ensure these textbooks don't just benefit one child but many generations.

Along with our guest donation we were thilled to offer a Selous Safari Company donation of 27 school desks which can seat three children and were sorely needed at Mbutu Mkwajuni School as the attendees had no where to sit.  We were more than happy to help the Chairman and the Headmaster with their request and donate 3.5 million Tsh (approx 1,600 USD) to ensure the children had somewhere comfortable to sit for their exams.

We look forward to providing more - more textbooks so the children can have access to much needed and priceless learning material and also desks - such simply things for many of us and yet so needed and vital for better study and better education.

If you would like to help please do not hesitate to contact us and we look foward to introducing guests to this wonderful village when they stay at Ras Kutani.
