How is your money spent?
The Kyela Polytechnic College is in the process of launching a new Secondary and Tertiary Education Bursary Programme. This programme is part of our strategy to restructure and streamline project delivery in Tanzania, to build long-term sustainable education provision in the District. From 2014/15, KPC has taken on the provision of means tested educational support for TMT registered orphans and vulnerable young people. Two new grants from the Samworth Foundation and Oglesby Charitable Trust in late 2014, will also enable us to provide improved facilities for our boarding students, as well as establishing a new driving school course to raise enrolment of students and enable the College to become financially independent.
In Kenya, in 2015 we plan to expand our extra curricula work by providing a more structured holiday learning support, such as drama, dance and sports activities, which add value to existing government education provision. We will establish vibrant boys’ clubs in 5 primary schools and complete our new resource centre at Rakwaro Chief's camp.

The TMT Kenya model farm now provides training to local smallholders, trials new ideas and technologies, offers practical work experience opportunities to young people and produces it’s own income from the sale of cash crops, poultry and tilapia fish. The farm’s four model fishponds provide aquaculture training to support our ‘Kobala Aquaculture Project’, which is providing new livelihoods opportunities for unemployed fishermen. Our mango tree-grafting scheme is upgrading local drought resistant varieties and improved varieties of cassava are benefiting local farmers.
This year we also started producing the food supplement, Spirulina, a blue-green algae widely produced and commercialized as a dietary supplement for modulating immune function. The farm now provides Spirulina to under-nourished children and people living with HIV. With a tested local market, strong community linkages and a range of beneficiary-led projects to invest in, TMT Kenya is now ready to launch their model farm as a larger scale social enterprise project, for which we start developing a business plan and fundraising in 2015.
