2011-2013 | Biharamulo St. Severin Primary School

Biharamulo, Kagera, Tanzania

The project is an extension of the well established primary school “St. Severin English Medium Day and Boarding Primary School” in Biharamulo/Tanzania.

The school is currently attended by approximately 240 pupils. It is expected that their number will be doubled, mainly by the girls from poor rural areas, within a period of 5 years.

During our stay in June 2011 in Tanzania we were able to analyze and specifically address their needs. This experience lead us to the concept of a multipurpose hall, kitchen and an Educational Lab.
