2012 Tanzania

Six teachers and three students from schools in Wales visited Tanzania through the British Council Connecting classrooms project. They were joined by four teachers from Botswana, funded by the Waterloo Foundation.

Once again the Tanzanian schools hosted the visitors with traditional food and culture. Visits to the  three Tanzanian  schools included time spent observing classroom lessons and time spent at the Waterloo garden projects. All schools reported improved attendance levels and examination performance since the garden projects began. Mandaka primary reported a rise from 38% to 90% in the pass rate to secondary education.

Teachers discussed the ways in which they are including and developing community links through the partnership activities.
