Peace House Update – December 2011
Peace House Secondary students successfully completed another school year. The Form 2 students’ test scores launched the school into the top 3% in the region! Now all students are enjoying a welcomed break from their studies until classes resume in January. Although Peace House students are orphaned (having lost one or both parents) or otherwise vulnerable, they still have strong ties to their communities. This break allows them to reconnect with grandparents, guardians, siblings and friends. It also maintains their cultural connection and strengthens their sense of social responsibility as Tanzanian citizens. To this end, many senior PHS students planned to spend their break tutoring local primary schoolchildren or volunteering in community service projects. As Peace House Africa envisions educating students to become the future leaders and change-makers of Tanzania, we are proud to see them already making efforts to “give-back” to their communities.
