Masekelo secondary school in Shinyanga has many challenges: there's no electricity or water, so each pupil needs to collect 5 litres of water each day and carry it to school. Until Tanzania Development Trust gave them a grant in November there were insufficient desks or chairs and many had to sit on the dirt floor.
I demonstrated this to the teachers and school board on the 5 donated tablets I'd brought, plus a couple of staff phones. They were astounded. "It's like a miracle", said the board chair. "Now we are in the 21st century", added a teacher.
