Many greetings from Tanzania where we are full of joy this Giving Tuesday.
Many greetings from Tanzania on this Giving Tuesday!
On November 16, Terrawatu officially handed over the new Kio Kit plus 2 laptops and a printer to Natema Primary School. Founding Co-Director Dr. Tanya was present for this joyous occasion.
For the past several weeks, Terrawatu's IT Team held workshops with parents, teachers and students in the community to gather information about needs and expectations regarding technology for education.
According to the English teacher at Natema, Ms. Dommy Bazil, the students have been using the tablets for just a few weeks and she has already seen improvement in their reading skills. And, importantly, the head teacher at the school has noted that attendance has improved as students look forward to learning with the assistance of the tablets. Each device connects to an internal server housing content in both Kiswahili and English, including videos from the Khan Academy and TED.
Terrawatu also provided 2 laptops connected to the internet and a printer for teachers and administrators to use to improve their work.
As there are over 20 teachers sharing the 2 laptops, we need to provide 2-3 more to assist the teachers. And, we need to continue to support the IT teachers in their work to integrate technology in the classroom. With your help and enthusiasm on this Giving Tuesday, we are on a one-day mission to raise $3000 to complete this amazing project.

Thank you from all of us at Terrawatu!
