The Lupila Secondary School
The Lupila Secondary School is located in a rural region in southwestern Tanzania.
A total of 297 girls and 165 boys visit the school.
Some of them also live in the school's accommodation, as some families live very far away in the countryside. Their education is partly financed by state subsidies, but most of the costs are borne by the parents.
Unfortunately, the school's financial resources are significantly too low to tackle the challenges ahead in full and with the necessary speed.
At least to tackle the challenges ahead in full and with the necessary speed.
Headmaster Abkasa joined the school in 2012 and has since facilitated an impressive transformation.
In the years before 2012, the school was below average in the national comparison. The children's living conditions were poor and the school's financial situation allowed little change. Since then, more attractive employment contracts have enabled Abkasa to hire many young teachers to help him develop the school. Teaching is entirely in English and follows the national curriculum.
