Capacity : 110

Sisters onsite : 8

Teachers onsite : 1

In their community work, the Sisters have been inundated with pleas from families to give their boys a place at school. Plans are now in development for a school for boys in Dodoma, Tanzania. The boys in these communities have little access to education and without support they face a bleak future of extreme poverty for themselves and generations of their families.

The Archdiocese of Dodoma donated 12 hectares of land for the new school. On December 9th, 2022, the Sisters were able to hold a groundbreaking ceremony to officially open the building project.

Once the building is complete, the Sisters of Mary will have the capacity to support 900-1,000 of the poorest boys in the region and give them a hope for a bright future.
