Maisha Mapya Education Centre Tanzania

-------School for Hotel Management

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 education.

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.


Our teaching programme focuses on the following components:
Hotel Management; students receive theory and practical training by professional teachers.
Tour guiding: a new subject, which covers general knowledge of nature and wildlife in Tanzania.
English: a popular subject with the students, which will give them better job opportunities and confidence;
Italian: basic phrases and small sentences taught by one of our teachers (arrivederci!);

Mathematics: necessary skill in today's life;
Sports: exercise and team building;
Domestic Science; health, cooking, etc.
Health: personal hygiene, AIDS
