This project dates back to the 1960s when TDT’s founder, Bishop Trevor Huddleston was Bishop of Masasi. In those days it was a small special school for the blind. Now it is a Special Needs unit for blind, deaf and disabled children within Mtandi State Primary School. Many of the special needs children are albinos. The children come from all over southern Tanzania and board at the school, going home twice a year, escorted by adults. The school and boarding are provided free of charge to parents.
