Bayport Tanzania: Bayport renovates Airport Primary School

Bayport Financial Services provided TZS 20 million to renovate the Airport Primary School in Kigoma. This is the largest amount given by any micro-finance institution (or any private company) to a single school in Tanzania. The project involved the construction of the school’s administration block, with two new offices – one for the head teacher’s office and the other for the teacher’s staff room. 160 desks where supplied to the school and all floors were redone. The entire school received a new lick of paint after all renovations were complete.

On 8 October 2010, a ceremony was held at the Airport Primary School in Kigoma to officially relaunch the school.

We sent Dr Kwaku (Chairman of the Board), Ibrahim Kaduma (Director), Etienne Coetzer (Chief Executive Officer), John Mbaga (Chief Operations Officer) and Ngula Cheyo (Marketing/PR Manager) to the launch. Ibrahim Kaduma spoke on behalf of the company at the ceremony.

The school was officially re-opened by the Kigoma Regional Commissioner Rtd. Col. Joseph Simbakalia who was invited as the guest of honour. Unfortunately, he was unable to attend but sent the District Commissioner, John Mongela, to officiate the ceremony on his behalf.
