INTRODUZIONE

Il Cottolengo Trust Tanzania per “testimoniare l’amore di Dio Padre Provvidente ai membri piú poveri della societá” avvia un progetto per aiutare le famiglie povere a pagare il costo dell’educazione per il loro figli.

Il Trust ha identificato come aiuto alle famiglie di pagare l’educazione (la scuola) ai loro figli come una delle vie migliori per sollevare le famiglie dalla miseria.

Il nostro sogno é di fare si che i piú poveri riacquistino la loro dignitá e partecipino al processo di sviluppo della societá.

ELIMU PROJECT é un’iniziativa nella Parrocchia di Kisarawe sotto il Cottolengo Trust. I membri hanno identificato le necessitá della societá e valutato i loro bisogni e hanno deciso di aiutare i giovani nella loro ricerca di aiuto per un migliore standard di vita.

ATTIVITÁ DI ELIMU PROJECT

Le attivitá proposte sono:
·         Tenere sessioni di counseling allo scopo di auitare i giovani a riacquistare le motivazioni per gli studi.
·         Provvedere il finanziamento totale o sparziale alle famiglie che non hanno le possibilitá di educare i loro giovani.
·         Alzare il livello di studi del giovane incluso nel progetto.
·         Fare counseling ad altri giovani che necessitano di motivazioni per continuare le scuole.
·         Provvedere un aiuto psico-sociale alle famiglie che hanno difficoltá a sostenere il costo dell’educazione dei loro figli.

I casi presi in considerazione sono:
·         Due ragazze che studiano per avere il certificato di insegnanti di scuola materna.
·         Un ragazzo e una ragazza della scuola secondaria a boarding school (tempo pieno). La situazione delle loro famiglie é tale che i ragazzi necessitano di stare a scuola a tempo pieno (senza tornare a casa) per togliersi dai problemi vari e concentrarsi nello studio.
·         Due ragazzi: uno studia per avere un diploma di Farmacologia e l’altro per ottenere un diploma di Procurement (Acquisti).

SOMMARIO

The Cottolengo Trust Tanzania (CTT) cerca di costruire una scuola primaria integrate ad accogliere i bambini a purpose-built school to provide an essential good education for children who need to receive or experience a stable educational environment.
The Cottolengo Integrated School is a project  started  by the Cottolengo Missionaries present in Tanzania with the aim of meeting the educational needs of the society, especially the poorest members of the society. Our conviction is that education is the path that leads out of poverty into the desired development of societies.
  1. Specific Objective
The specific goal is to provide quality education to the poor children who cannot afford it due to financial problems. It focuses especially on educating children of low privileged families and those with special needs.
  1. School Model: Integrated School
The school assumes an integrated, and so welcomes children with disabilities. The dream is to see children with special needs, especially the disabled or those living with handicapped, live and learn side by side with those who come from stable and well-to-do environments. The project will also receive others from well to do families so as to reach its goal of integration and sustain the school economically besides providing reasonable academic standard. This will reduce drastically the costs for all families who most of the time take their children to schools far away from our district.
  1. Infrastructure
The project   aims at constructing fourteen classrooms namely a double stream from class one to seven, an administration block, dining room, kitchen, store, home science room, Library, special class room and a computer room. These will take into consideration the needs of the physically challenged.
  1. Co-Educational Programmes
Cottolengo Integrated school aims at bringing up an all-round citizen borrowing from our Founder St. Joseph Cottolengo, who wanted to take care of the “material as well as the spiritual needs of the poor”.
It aims at placing other co-curricular activities and talent development in areas such as Music, Art and Design, home science, communications skills, Information Technology and so on. The school will also provide community-based projects/training development programs outside of school hours, all of which can be attended by parents and older family members to enrich their education, thus bringing some cohesiveness into the community alongside the children’s education. This will be an avenue for parenting seminars.


  1. Construction Timescale
The timescale for constructing the school is 24 months from the start date, when resources are available. Once the school is open, it will run indefinitely. The school will be situated at Sanze in Kisarawe town in Coastal region just a few miles away from Pugu the outskirt of Dar es salaam City.
The School will require:
  • Building and construction materials for Elementary School blocks. (See Appendix A).
The School is expected to provide education to 80 children in each of the seven grades (total of 560) and employ qualified teachers and administrative staff.
  1. Boarding Facilities
A keen study carried out around has found out that boarding schools perform better in national exams than day schools. Many factors contribute to this including: absenteeism, non-supervision of preps for children at home, truancy, peer pressure and so on. Children in a boarding school are monitored by their teachers and other support staff in these areas. Following the school timetable in Kenya where there are three terms, children might find it easier to study in an intensive timetable. CTT is proposing a boarding facility for the children from Class four onwards.
  1. Educational Goals
The School will:
  • Enable children to reach their full potential by providing them with a good education. This in turn will help them to mature spiritually, psychologically, emotionally and develop their talents hand in hand with good social skills.
  • Provide local employment thus boosting the morale of those in the surrounding communities.
  • Keep families together in a community context, as the school is a local amenity.
  • Assist in the reduction of violence and crime through community-based projects established outside of school hours.
CTT will endeavor to raise funds through Parents contribution, people of good will contributions and Funding Proposals.
CTT is requesting support from you, as a Donor, towards the cost of the building and construction materials for the school.



SECTION 1: CONTEXT

·         The Registered Trustees of the Cottolengo Trust Tanzania

The Registered Trustees of the Cottolengo Trust Tanzania, here in refered to as Cottolengo or simply as CTT, is a body corporate registered in 2013. The aims of CTT is to provide support for the poorest in the development endeavors in the areas of education, health, community development, and spiritual sphere.
Since its incorporation in 2013, CTT has carried our short initiatives and other long term initiatives in line with its vision and mission. Last year CTT undertook to pay medical bills for the sick, it helped some poor families acquire meals and decent housing, it is supporting nine students in secondary school and university colleges, and it is currently carrying out UWEZO Project for needy girls and women to learn dressmaking.

·         Our Beneficiaries 

The Kisarawe natives are the Zaramo who according to the District Council form 70% of the population while rest is immigrants. These people from different areas migrated to the city to look for jobs but unfortunately they found themselves wondering in the outskirts of the city jobless. As a result they engage themselves in daily temporal activities like selling water, firewood and charcoal just to mention a few.

·         Our Method

Provision of quality education is therefore one way of fulfilling our mission and this is what we are eager to accomplish if we get support to construct Cottolengo Integrated school among the Zaramo tribe living in coastal region.
We hope to continue supporting the poorest members through fundraising done by CTT and by making appeals for scholarship for needy but bright students.

·         Our Values

We strongly believe that children own the future of the nation. That requires a change of the attitude of youth towards the peaceful human relation, add values of respect, tolerance, knowledge and empathy at homes, school and around the world. Therefore by educating the youth we expect a bright future and a changed world.


SECTION 2: ENVISAGED MILESTONES

2.1.  Overview

CTT owns plot No. 1 block A, in Sanze, which covers around 7 Hectares. The land is hearmarked for construction of
a)      Cottolengo Integrated School: Primary School. Class one to Three are day scholars, Class four to seven are Boarding school.
b)      Cottolengo Secondary School: Form one to form 6 will be Boarding school.
c)       Cottolengo Health Centre: an Outpatient and Inpatient section, especially for Mother and Child Health (MCH).
d)      Residences for Formation house, Priests and Sisters
e)      Other Accomodations for workers and visitors.
As has been highlighted above, Kisarawe and the surrounding area is underdeveloped and therefore cannot, at this time, cater for the educational needs of the children. It is unacceptable the distance that the children have to walk to attend school, and back again. Parents in the area cannot afford to send their children to school and so the social needs of the children are also wanting.
It is hoped that through this funding proposal CTT can establish a school, and in so doing, be able to alleviate some of the pressures of the parents of families living below the poverty line.
The aim is to establish an Elementary School to help and assist the surrounding communities and beyond. As a kindergarten the school is and it has more than a hundred pupils and about 30-40 pupils are admitted every year and those who complete their nursery education go to other schools. The project looks forward to admitting these children in class one instead of graduating and going to other schools.
If we get grants we look forward to construct:-
*      Two classroom blocks of two floors- {Comprising of;- 14 classrooms, 1 computer lab,1 home science lab and pupils Toilets},
*      Administration block {Comprising of Offices/mini library/staff dining/store and staff toilets}
*      Play grounds
NOTE:The estimated budget for the school is attached at Appendix A.

2.2. Outputs

The planned outputs are as follows:
*      The school will be constructed within a period of between 24 - 48 months, when resources are available.
*      Within seven (7) years of the school opening, approx. 560 children will be provided with a good education at primary level. Thereafter the school will have a secondary section to cater for the graduating classes.
*      The children’s wellbeing will be catered for spiritually, psychologically, emotionally, physically and socially.
*      Provide local employment to those in the surrounding communities therefore decreasing the number of those caught in the poverty trap.
*      As a local amenity, the school will provide community-based projects/training development programs, outside of school hours, thus keeping families together in a community context.
*      Creating community awareness and inclusiveness which is an essential and very real aspect of tradition village life.

2.3. OUR COMMITMENT

Cottolengo through this project is committed to do the following;
*      CTT will endeavor to inform you, as Donor, regularly of progress being made on the project.
*      CTT will submit all necessary Reports, when due, whether monthly or quarterly etc. to you. Reports will also be provided promptly, on request.
*      CTT will receive you, as Donor, at the project site at any time, should they wish to visit.
It is vital that CTT has open communication links with you, as our Donor. It is for this work that we are seeking support from you, as Donor, as we are aware that your emphasis is on building and construction materials.

·         CONCLUSION

The Board of Trustees of the Cottolengo Trust Tanzania has made the dream of the local community theirs. We wish to realize this dream with them. Through the support of Associazione Luisa Monti Onlus, of Bosa, Sardegna, we have made a borehole which assures us water for the construction works and later for the consumption at the school. This means the realization of our dream has kicked off. We ask you to join us in this dream.
