The Problem

Msandaka Primary School is a small rural school in the Moshi district of Tanzania which is at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The school has 7 classrooms for 500 pupils aged 5 to 12. There are no funds at all for regular repairs and their current toilet facilities are in complete disrepair.
