    [TD="class: kaziBody, align: left"]Church plans to improve quality education
    By DASSU STEPHEN in Mwanza, 9th November 2011 @ 16:00, Total Comments: 0, Hits: 92

    A RECENT report shows that it is only 30 per cent of the schools run by the Catholic church in the country that provide quality education, thanks to a qualified number of teachers and modest resources to manage such learning institutions.

    Various stakeholders have started raising concerns, charging that a massive failure of students, particularly in the final Form Four national examinations, is a threat to the future development of the nation, and therefore experts call for the need of all key players to take necessary measures to reverse if not arrest the trend.

    That was a major focus of a two-day workshop that took place in Mwanza city just a few days ago. The workshop was attended by the Bishops and heads of the Catholic secondary schools. The participants deliberated on matters related to improving quality of education. The Dar es Salaam Archbishop, Polycarp Cardinal Pengo, reiterates the need for the Church to provide quality education that satisfies needs of a contemporary society. The soft spoken Cardinal said:

    "The education we provide to the people, for example, should be geared to produce people with both excellent academic knowledge and moral values. "The same people should be able to serve this nation with a high degree of diligence, commitment, integrity and responsibility."

    "Let us discuss as a nation on how we can improve the quality of our education so that we can
    have a learned society that can effectively address the social, economical and political challenges facing our country and the world at large. We should, for example, ask ourselves:Why do we have learned people in the society, and yet vices such as corruption remain so pervasive?," he was quoted as telling the participants.

    It should be recalled that pursuant of evangelization mission, since it set its foot in Africa, established secular education at all levels of the education system. In Tanzania the Catholic
    Church owned and managed primary, secondary, vocational and tertially level schools even before the country gained independence from colonial rule in 1961.

    The education system provided by the Church was highly reputable for its quality, and its graduates were renowned for their knowledge and skills in various spheres in the country. Experts say the influence of the Church in the Tanzania education sector was for a period of 30 years overshadowed by the government's decision to nationalize the provision of social services particularly provision of education.

    However, with liberalization of provision of social services which came in the wake of enactment of Education Amendment Act of 1995, the Catholic Church in Tanzania revitalized its efforts to provide education services at all levels. Establishment of secondary schools has since the liberalization policy increased. Whereas in 1998 the Church had only 138 secondary schools, it has now more than 200 secondary schools across the country.

    However, there has been concerns that some of these schools are not performing very well while a few of them with excellent performance are also seen moving astray from the mission and vision of the Church in the provision of social services in the society. "We are now witnessing some of our schools charge exorbitant school fees, while others are gradually becoming schools for the elites.

    I think this contradicts the mission of the Church," said one of the participants. The SAUT Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs (DVCAA), Dr Pius Mgeni, says lack
    of financial resources, poor management, poor teaching skills and inadequate teaching staff are some of the major factors that contribute to poor perfomance of more than 60 per cent of the Catholic secondary schools.

    "Most of the secondary schools had poor supply of textbooks, while the majority of secondary schools, except seminaries and schools run by Religious men and women, performed poorly in the 2007 national O level and A level examinations. On the other side, the study also revealed that where good management and leadership existed, the performance of schools was really exemplary, explained Dr Mgeni.

    Other observers noted that there is also a huge gap between the owners of the schools (Bishops) and the managers who oversee the day to day activities of these schools. "It has also come to light that most of the Bishops who are real owners of the schools, are
    far away from the management of these schools... It is high time that we do something on how to properly manage our schools," says the Saint Augustine university of Tanzania
    (SAUT) Vice- Chancellor, Dr Charles Kitima.

    "The fees structure has also been a major stumbling block for some of the students to join the schools. Apart from seminaries which receive subsidies from the Holy See, other well performing Catholic secondary schools are charging high fees (up to 700,000/-) which make it difficult for children from poor families to get access to these schools," said one of the participants.

    Officials say some Dioceses and religious congregations control the fee structure in order to allow students from poor families to join the schools. But this control lacks quality assurance mechanism as teachers are not well professionally prepared and motivated. Observers say there is every reason for the determination by the Church to regain its reputation the Catholic secondary schools had prior to and soon after independence before education
    sector was nationalized:

    "Since provision of quality secular education is a means toward development of people and evangelization, thus improving quality of education cannot be emphasized," says the Tanzania Episcopal Conference (TEC) chairperson, Reverend Severin Niwemugizi.

    Reverend Niwemugizi says the Church has unequivocally resolved to offer quality services to the society, and one of these services is quality education," I think we need to be a learning organization, and also ensure that we satisfy demands for quality of education to the people by involving all key players, such as the government, parents, teachers and students.

    We need to apply the total quality management skills and techniques in order to reach this goal," he said. Cardinal Polycarp Pengo says that quality education should mean more than just acquiring academic knowledge, and for this reason, he says, the schools should not only impart academic knowledge, but also inculcate a sense of moral values, responsibility, nationalism, respect for human dignity, and promotion of the national peace and harmony.

    "Our schools strive to create enabling environment to slow learners so that they can also perform well in the schools.We have also a sole responsibility to ensure children from poor families (who cannot afford to pay for the schools fees) are given neccessary support to join the schools," said Dr Kitima.

    "It is true that we still have a positive reputation of providing quality education in the country.The question is: For how long are we going to maintain this reputation?" querried Dr Mgeni.[/TD]

    At last Mchuchuma, Liganga projects to take off this week From a Correspondent in Ludewa, 13th November 2011 @ 15:00, Total Comments: 1, Hits: 548PRESIDENT Jakaya Kikwete has announced that the multi-billion shillings Liganga iron ore and Mchuchuma coal mining projects in Ludewa District, Iringa Region will take off later this week. President Kikwete said the two projects, which are important for development of extractive industries and power generation, will change the economic outlook of the nation as a whole. Addressing a rally at Mawengi Ward in Ludewa after launching the 150KW power project, Mr Kikwete said the two projects would employ 8,000 people during preliminary stages. In September, the National Development Corporation (NDC) signed a three billion US dollars (about 4.8trl/-) joint venture agreement with China's Sichuan Hongda Group for development of the projects after a long process of search for investors. Mr Kikwete who was launching the electricity project by Lumama Electrical Association called on the youth in the district to take advantage of the presence of the projects to get jobs so that the notion of better life to all Tanzanians to prevail. He said the projects will be preceded by infrastructure projects such as roads and railways in order to facilitate transportation to and from the mine. The president paid tribute to the Roman Catholic Njombe Diocese for supporting the government's efforts in bringing affordable electricity to people in rural areas. He called on people to preserve sources of water so that they can get continued supply of electricity from the Lumama project and avert adverse effects of climate change. Mr Kikwete promised that the government through Rural Electrification Authority (REA) will support the project so that the diocese can provide electricity to more people. The president said it was the government's intention to connect the headquarter of Ludewa and Mawengi with the national power grid and do away with the current diesel generator which is expensive. He said other areas expected to benefit include the route from Makambako, Njombe to Songea with 232KW. The Lumama Project Manager Alice Michelazzi said the project started in 1998 at the cost of 8.9bn/- and is expected to benefit 10,000 residents of Lupande, Mawengi and Mdunda. Michelazzi said the project was financed by the Non-Governmental Organisation ACRA, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy, European Union, Italian Regions of Lombaridia, Itervita and Foranzione Cariplo. Meanwhile, the president has announced he will appoint new regional and district commissioners in all new regions and districts with vacant posts between now and December. He said the government was working on recruitment of supporting staff in the areas.Daily News | At last Mchuchuma, Liganga projects to take off this week

    Medic wants mission hospital to be constituent university

    Lusekelo Philemon
    A long-serving medical practitioner at the Mbulu-based Haydom Lutheran Hospital (HLH), Dr Isaack Malleyeck, has expressed a need for the health facility to be a constituent university run by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania (ELCT).
    Dr Malleyeck, who has served at the hospital for decades and eight years as assistant hospital director, said the hospital played an instrumental role in providing competitive medical services in the northern zone and other parts of central Tanzania.
    "I hope that in five years to come, this hospital will be transformed into being part of the ELCT universities because of its experiences and training facilities," Dr Malleyeck said recently at a farewell function held at Mbulu church hospital. He noted that apart from offering medical services, the facility had been a training hub for medical practitioners.
    The hospital has two schools Haydom Secondary Upgrading School, which started in 1971 and Nurses Training School. The latter offers grade "A" certificate in nursing and midwifery, which qualifies to be a diploma course. The school started in 1982 and there are about 90 students.
    The hospital is also a training hub for medical students pursuing different studies in and outside the country.
    Dr Malleyeck also commended the effort made by the hospital management to improve service delivery in the area, which is prone to malaria, tuberculosis, respiratory tract infections, gastroenteritis and diarrhoeal diseases like amoebiasis and giardiasis.
    The hospital serves patients from Mbulu, Babati, Hanang, Iramba, Singida Rural and as far as Meatu.
    "In practice, this hospital serves more than five districts although three of them have district hospitals of their own," he said. Last year, HLH was transformed into a referral hospital in the area and it has been given the responsibility of testing all TB patients in Mbulu district. HLH was first built by the Norwegian Lutheran
    Mission in 1953. It is about 80km south-west of district headquarters and about 300km from Arusha. It was handed over to the ELCT Mbulu Synod in 1963. The hospital is under the medical board, which is elected by the General Assembly of ELCT, Mbulu Synod.

    Another university for Tanzania in offing
    By a Correspondent, 17th December 2011 @ 11:10, Total Comments: 1, Hits: 278

    COME September, next year, more Tanzanians will have more opportunities for higher education following the commencement of the United African University.

    A member of the new university's founding committee, Mr Gaudence Kayombo, revealed this at a brief ceremony for the members of the committee held in Dar es Salaam on Friday. The university will be located at Kigamboni in Dar es Salaam.

    Mr Kayombo who is also a Member of Parliament (MP) for Mbinga East Constituency, said the new University which has been started by a church from South Korea seeks to contribute to the development of higher education in Tanzania.

    "This university aims at elevating the status of higher learning education in Tanzania," Mr Kayombo said. He thanked people from Kigamboni for accepting to allocate land for the university, saying that it was a good sign that will help building confidence for investors coming in the country.

    Already, the new university has few buildings and continues to construct more infrastructures. Mr Kayombo also thanked the Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) for allowing it to start operating.

    The university was out to provide quality and international standard education, according to him. The university expects to start offering various disciplines in Engineering, Business, Management and Computer courses.

    The chairperson of the founding committee, Mr Joshua Lee and Director of the University said the idea to start the university was conceived in 2004 and that now they are ready to take off.

    "We want to offer education that will help people transform their country toward better living standard and the nation's development at large," Mr Lee who has been living in Tanzania since 1992 said.

    He said several students would be sent to Korea and other countries during exchange programmes to expose them with a view of getting better leaders in future. Ambassador Nicholas Kuhanga is another member of the University's founding committee.

    He said higher education is the prerequisite for the country's development and commended the establishment of the university saying it would add value towards achieving this goal. He said that endeavours showed by Pastor Lee were something worth supporting for the good of Tanzania.
