From the perspective of our students
The secondary school in Tanzania started a journalism club in 2023 and have begun to send us content from the class. They are really proud of the accomplishments at New Dawn Communities and have listed a few here for you.
We have left the article completely unedited and as written by the student reporter. The entire thing would not be possible without you, our generous supporters.

THE BUILIDING OF NEW LABORATORY
Our school New Dawn had no qualified laboratories for science subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The students are still using a mult-purpose laboratory to their practical which is not good for the students to perform well.
The good news is that the construction of New laboratory resumed this year 2023 and it is in a good condition. The plumbers have already fixed the water pipes which will be supplying water in the laboratory. The chamber for collecting dirty water has being prepared and sinks have also been put. The work is exquisite and it will be a blessing for the students especially those who are studying science subjects.
