IRINGA District this week received a 40-feet container full of miscellaneous educational books from the Second Wind Foundation of Seabrook Texas, the United States.
The books were received by District Commissioner Richard Kasesela and Regional Educational Officer Tupe Muyinga.
The donation was arranged by the Second Wind Foundation of Seabrook Texas local partner Clement Kilembe in collaboration with Sakyambo Enterprise Company Limited.
Speaking on behalf of the donors, Mr Angumbwike Kilembe told the audience that the donation was intended for Iringa residents to boost the sector of education.
He said this was the third container the project had delivered to Tanzania with Mbinga and Kibiti being the previous recipients.
Mr Richard Kasesela thanked the foundation, Sakyambo Ltd, Mr Bovan Mwakyambiki and Mr Clement Kilembe for the timely donation of books, saying it would make a difference.
He acknowledged the contribution of Tanzanians in the Diaspora such as Mr Clement Kilembe, who took a keen interest in the development of Tanzania and the advancement of its people.
He urged the more than 300 pupils present to utilise these books to increase their knowledge in critical subjects like mathematics, science and the English language.
The project is expected to reach other districts in other parts of the country over the next few years.
