World Vision Tanzania has handed over development projects, including a modern classroom in Makuyuni, to government.
The Monduli World Vision Coordinator, Emili Sanka, who handed over the project, including the construction of a modern classroom in Lemiyoni, said 13 villages in Makuyuni will benefit from it.
In Tanzania, children still face many challenges including violence, malnutrition, poor health care and education, and other basic services.
‘Apart from classrooms, we are also handing over 14 water tanks, mindful dry spells and water scarcity is a common problem in the area’, Sanka said.
He also said the organisation would continue to drill water wells at Manyara Ranch in line with the 40th WVT anniversary.
Monduli District Commissioner, Edward Balele, commended WVT for the work they have been doing in the district and for helping the most vulnerable children overcome poverty.
He challenged other non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to emulate WVT.
‘It is very saddening to see an organisation purporting to splash out millions of shillings while residents continue wallowing in abject poverty… I will not turn a blind eye to such NGOs’, he said.
