Imauluma Secondary School is located in the village of Lugodalutali, in the Iringa region in central Tanzania. Work was begun on building this school after the area's elected representative to the District Council learned about the schools VST had opened in other villages, returned to share this news with his constituents, and then sent word to us that would like to invite us to discuss the possiblity. Soon after we met with village leaders, work began in earnest. The building of the school has moved forward at a good pace and the school now has more than 500 students enrolled.

Imauluma has been equipped with a generator and computer equipment and is a hub for the printing of exams and other teaching materials for our other schools in the Iringa region. We hope in the near future to also install internet capabilities at the school.

Imauluma will graduate its first students this year. Many of them have already indicated their desire to participate in our 4-month internship program after graduation; they will be sent to schools around the country to either teach our Intensive English "boot camp" or to supervise the building of additional classrooms as part of a community service project.
