Tabora gets 250 cement bags for construction of girls’ dormitories

THE Tanzania Airports Authority (TAA) has donated 12.5 tonnes of cement for construction of girls’ dormitories at various secondary schools in Tabora Region.

Speaking at an event to hand over the 250 bags of cement at Itonjanda ward in Tabora municipal, TAA Acting Commercial Director, Rose Comino said the authority provides various support to the community as part of community social responsibility (CSR).

She said the authority supports educational projects because it believes that all children are equal and deserve quality education as well as being protected from any challenges that may result into failure to achieve their life dreams.

Comino urged Tabora residents to continue supporting their legislator—Munde Tambwe (Special Seats-CCM) in her endeavours to improve provision of education in the region.

“Let us join hands with our MP in ending early pregnancies to school girls. We do not want girls to walk for long distances to and from school, the dormitories will protect our children from early pregnancies and other forms of violence”, said the TAA official adding that with the dormitories more girls will complete their secondary school education

She said being the government entity established in 1997, TAA is responsible for supporting community projects. She said the authority also provides opportunities to Tanzanians to operate businesses at airports as well as transporting agricultural produce.

Special Seats MP, Munde Tambwe commended TAA for the support insisting the aim is to construct dormitories at every ward secondary school in Tabora region.

“The government is implementing a free education policy; we must support government’s efforts by ensuring our girls stay at school and complete their secondary education. Walking for too long distances contributes into some girls failing to fulfill their life dreams due to pregnancy,” said the legislator.

Tambwe said that 100 cement bags will be given to Itonjanda ward while the remaining 150 cement bags will be distributed to various schools across the region.

CCM chairman at Itonjanda ward thanked TAA for the support as the girls will comfortably attend classes. He promised to provide support to the Special Seats MP to ensure the targeted aim of having dormitories at each of the public secondary schools it achieved.
