Construction of the first three classrooms
Save Life English Medium School began as the vision of Pastor Lupi Mwaipalo for the many orphans and other vulnerable children who were too poor to be able to attend the local government school. His vision grew from 30 preschoolers who met in Lupi's front yard to a group of 55 students being taught by two volunteer teachers. The group moved from his front yard to two rented rooms near Lupi's church. English is the primary language of instruction, and the students' academic progress far exceeds that of their peers in most government schools.
At the end of 2016, through donations to TFT, eight acres of land in the Kyela District in southern Tanzania were purchased for the construction of Save Life English Medium School, which eventually will provide preschool through grade 7.
Since then, a deep well and the administration building were completed. As of spring 2020, the first three classrooms have been construction. The final detail work of flooring, windows, doors, and outside cementing needs to be completed.
These first three classrooms will house the 3-4 year group and two groups of preschoolers. Our next goal will be to construct six more classrooms for grades 1-3. Ultimately, the school will accommodate students through grade 7.
This school will offer hope for a brighter future through a dynamic learning environment of exceptional academics as well as a safe, supportive community for spiritual development.
The school will be a non-denominational institution dedicated to educating children whose families cannot afford to send them to school but also to accept students whose families can afford the fees.
In addition to revenue from donations, Pastor Lupi has already planted trees for harvest in several years, crops to feed the children and crops to serve as cash crops. Students will learn micro business skills as they help with the planting and selling of crops.
