Every year thousands of Tanzanian
youths finish their primary education with no prospects of
continuing their education. This can be because of failing
of the exams or the lack of money to go on to private schools.
The Maisha Mapya Education Centre
was established in 2004 to help girls and boys who finished
primary school or secondary school with no chances for further
We especially help those families,
who have not the resources to pay for the education of their
children. We focus on children who have stayed at home for
a number of years after finishing primary or secondary education.
We focus our training on a 1
year course in hotel management and the majority of our students
have secured a job after their studies.
At the end of the course the
students get an official certificate and they also receive
training how to apply for jobs.
Students of Maisha Mapya have
found employment in tourist hotels in Serengeti, Ngorongoro,
Arusha, Moshi, Zanzibar, Dodoma and Dar es Salaam.
