East Meru Community School

East Meru Community School began life in a donated, renovated cowshed, with the aim of providing a free, quality, English medium education for children of all abilities from the most disadvantaged homes in Maruvango, a remote, rural village in the Meru District of Arusha, Tanzania. We believe that by providing such an education we can help to change the lives of these children, their families and the whole wider community.

East Meru Community School is supported by Rotarians in Australia through their Teacher in a Box program, and sponsorship of students.

Mary Shanguya, the founder of the East Meru Community School, keeps us updated with her Facebook posts.
