Katunda Secondary School is one of the many new schools in the Rukwa region of Tanzania that was started as a result of the initiative one man took to go around to communities across Rukwa holding town meetings. Anyisile did this for three years and helped to start 8 secondary schools in the Rukwa region. In July 2011 he moved more than 500 km to the east to the Morogoro region to begin building Taita Secondary School in the village of Taweta with the goal of launching a similar movement among people in villages in that part of the country.

Katunda Secondary School, located in the village of Kambo, is the result of the efforts of people from 9 villages. Together they have built 6 classrooms, a science laboratory building and a multi-purpose building with offices, a school library and an assembly hall. Over 200 students are currently enrolled.
