Majete Wildlife Reserve Shelters Futsa Students
African Parks Majete Wildlife Reserve has handed over a K22 million worth school block with two classrooms at Futsa Community Day Secondary School in Mwanza.
This, according to the Reserve, is in a drive to create more understanding on the importance of environmental conservation,
Community Extension Manager for the Reserve, Dixie Makwale, says: "Our organization values education because we know that educated community will understand better the importance of conserving the environment than the latter."
He says it is to this regard that with support from UK Aid, they responded positively to request from Mwanza District Council and commended the cordial relationship which exists between Majete Wildlife Reserve and the surrounding community.
Mwanza District Council Chairperson, Kaisi Chimbalanga, said that the facility will help to increase number of students who get selected to the school.
"We are grateful that now more students will attend secondary school education hence promoting education in the district," said Chimbalanga.
While commending African parks Majete Wildlife Reserve for the support, Mwanza District Education Manager Saulos Namani asked other well-wishers to assist in other areas of needs at the school.
"The school still needs a library, teachers‘ houses and girls' hostel in order to protect the girls from different forms of abuse they may encounter due to long distances to and from school," said Namani.
Futsa CDSS which was opened in 2015 had only two classroom blocks.
