Background for Skoleprojekt KATEMPRIS
KATEMPRIS was founded and started in order to offer quality education in a friendly learning environment in one of the poorest regions of Tanzania. The Katabaro English Medium Primary School’s work to develop and use modern teaching methodologies and aids that can have a lasting impact in the community and supporting not only the immediate local community around the school, but also the entire district and the nation as a whole. It supports the UN Global Goal 4 “Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning”.
The school was inaugurated in 2015 and has since then been growing both in numbers of students, teachers and volunteers but also in number of facilities. At present there is roughly 124 pupils and 10 teachers. When it is fully built it will hold around 300 pupils from age 3 until 12, employ 12-16 teachers besides the staff in the kitchen, the boarding school staff and the administration.
KATEMPRIS is a school that has the only playground in a radius of almost 100-150 km. They are a school that prioritizes education very highly, as the pupils are not required to use the day fetching water, finding firewood or transporting them selves to the school from far away. This is a practice you will not find in many schools in Tanzania that are located outside the major cities.
They insist on providing food, transportation and water. They make an effort to prioritize physical education, arts and good sanitary habits.
Physical punishment is not allowed at KATEMPRIS – something that is widespread in the educational system.
