Uhuru Mchanganyiko primary school is one of the oldest educational institutions in Tanzania. It was established in the city of Dar es Salaam in 1921, and was the first to accept students with disabilities to learn alongside other children in the classroom. Some of the school’s male and female students are blind, some are deaf-blind, and some have learning disabilities. Many board at the school because of a lack of facilities in their local area.
The motto of the school is: “Change is development, education, discipline and love to all. The school’s vision is to enable pupils to recognize available opportunities within their environment, and make the best of those opportunities for their own development”.
The Ann Foundation helped provide online English classes to the students at Uhuru Mchanganyiko primary school- until poor connectivity in the region forced the school to discontinue the classes.
