The transition to secondary school is difficult for any child, but particularly in Tanzania, when they suddenly need to start learning in English. This year, we are supporting schemes in 8 schools who have been teaching over 700 students for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week since the end of September, thanks to a grant from the Eddie Byers Fund matched by an anonymous donor.

The transition to secondary school is difficult for any child, but particularly in Tanzania, when they suddenly are supposed to start learning in English. From having a few teachers speaking Swahili to many new subjects in a new language this is a big challenge. Many students struggle to understand their teachers and start to drop behind and lose interest. Therefore we were delighted to receive a grant from the Eddie Byers Fund.
