Amount of grant approved (£) : 2,171Year of grant : 2016

Kevin Curley visited Kihenya Secondary School in February 2016. It is in Heru Ushingu village about 60 miles from Kasulu in Kigoma region. It was a hard trek on dirt roads by motorbike. Kevin met all Form 4 and Form 2 students. These are the national examination classes. Most of the students live within easy walking distance from the school. There was huge enthusiasm for installation of solar powered lighting in their classrooms so that they could return to school to study after dark. We awarded a grant of £2171 to make this possible. Lighting will also be provided for the staff room and teachers will be able to charge their phones.
