Dar es Salaam, 17 th August 2017: Hassan Maajar TRUST (HMT) recently marked its sixth year anniversary by partnering with Radar Education to refurbish the Majimatitu Primary School library along with a 933 books donation. The event was held at the school located in Mbagala, Temeke District, Dar es Salaam.

The HMT Executive Director, Ambassador Bertha Semu-Somi and Radar Education General Manager Arthur Walden on behalf of their organizations presented the refurbished library and books to Majimatitu Head Teacher, Abdul Malik. The Temeke District Commissioner, Felix Lyavia, officiated at the Event.

Speaking at the event yesterday, HMT’s Executive Director said, “This is our third time at Majimatitu. In August 2015, we donated 30 desks for pupils with disability. Then we found that 90% of students sit on the floor due to lack of desks. Committed to solve the problem and sponsored by Bank M, HMT organised a Charity Walk in November 2015”.

Through the Charity Walk, HMT succeeded in 1) raising awareness on the shortage of desks at Majimatitu. Many Education Stakeholders heeded the call”. 2) Collecting funds enough to procure 280 desks that sit three to four students each, thereby lifting over 850 students off the floor on to desks.

HMT’s core objective is to contribute to an improved learning environment for quality education in schools. “We are delighted to have Radar Education on board this project. The Radar Education Chief, Mr Walden stated “We are happy to join HMT for this Library project, which is for us a welcome opportunity to continue to contribute to quality Education in Tanzania. We donated over 900 books.

We hope that students will embrace this support aimed at building the culture of reading” The renovation of this library is a part of HMT’s ‘A Desk For Every Child’ campaign, In six years, the Trust prides in over 9,000 desks donated to 13 regions (Rukwa, Njombe, Singida, Mwanza, Pwani, Shinyanga, Kigoma, Lindi, Mbeya, Iringa, Mtwara, Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro) lifting over 30,000 students off the floor.

“We have gone far in realizing HMT’s dual dream of raising awareness on the plight of pupils learning to read and write while seated on the floor, and mobilising the public to join the HMT led initiative to resolve the problem’, added Ms. Semu-Somi.
