Accessing education has always been difficult for the children of Longido, an isolated Maasai area of Tanzania. With children as young as three responsible for herding the family’s cattle, a two-hour walk each way to the nearest school has been impossible to balance with their domestic duties.
Hearing about the need in Longido, we founded independent Ebeneza Primary School to educate the children in their first two years of schooling. The school has two classes of around 50 students. Through the generous support of our donors, we provide consistent salaries for teachers and support staff, ongoing training, teachers resources, clean water and food for the children to enable them to focus and get the most from their education experience.
