Lack of funding for education is a major issue in Tanzania. Schools do not have the materials they need to give students the best possible education. While many students in the US enjoy the luxury of having a book to keep at home in addition to a class set available to read in the classroom, many schools in Tanzania may have only one outdated copy for the entire school. This one copy usually stays in the possession of the teacher in order to make lesson plans, and the students most likely never even see it.
  
The overall goal of this project is to strengthen civic and economic conditions by achieving sustainable, progressive, and competitive agricultural development.
+
At our Primary School, this is the case. The teachers and the students simply do not have the books or materials they need. The teachers and community members have identified improvement of education as a top priority, and agree that opening a school library would be the first step toward achieving this goal.
  
The primary objective of the project is to improve the resources, presentation skills and mixed media ability of organization “Beskitek”, the organizational leader and partner of farming cooperative CPKV, Zhetasai. This will be done through 55 hours of IT trainings by the Peace Corps volunteer on Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Adobe Photoshop, combined with resource acquisitions of a laptop computer, LCD projector and projection screen, and a color printer. This will increase the ability to disseminate information of new business and agricultural strategies and methodologies to local civic and agricultural partners, thus improving the capacity building of those organizations.
+
This project will provide new textbooks in every subject for every grade 1-7 at the primary school, as well as additional resources such as dictionaries, special interest books, stationary and fiction books. The primary school has offered to provide for 73% of the project including the building where the library will be located, and all of the furniture and shelves. The school has also decided to share the library with the entire community, which will provide resources and improve literacy throughout the village. The library will give the students the research skills they will need to succeed as well as serve as an encouragement for a life-long love of learning.
 
 
The secondary objective of the project is creating and publishing the first copy of a bi-monthly agricultural newsletter, along with designing organizational brochures and posters. Working with partners and local farmers has exposed the limited connectivity and sharing of information between partnering farmers, processing plants, and financial and civic institutions.
 
 
 
Community contributions include office space for IT trainings, an auditorium for partners and civic trainings, a computer, filing cabinet, binders, folders, and paper for the newsletters, poster, and brochure, along with an IT technical assistant, agricultural trainers, travel costs, graphic designer, project coordinator, and newspaper editor.
