Bursary Support Program

Vocational Training and Future Leaders

According to the 2021 World Bank Tanzania Education Sector Institutional and Governance Assessment report, 28% of Tanzanian children are not enrolled in secondary school and only 3.1% have access to tertiary education (UNESCO).

The Bursary Support Program was created to increase the number of students accessing secondary school and tertiary education. The program has succeeded in improving access to tertiary education for students from low-income families, who would otherwise have had no means of funding their education.

The program has supported students enrolled at secondary schools, vocational colleges, and universities.

Bursary Support Programme successes

  • Previously sponsored student was awarded the highest mark at sixth form examinations and providing him a university place to study Food Science and Technology at University;
  • Eight (8) students completed vocational technical training in Tailoring, Cookery, Plumbing, Electrical Installations and Motor vehicle mechanics.
  • We have seen an improved number of students pass-rates at high school in recent years, compared to previous years. And this is attributed to the Library and Bursary Support Programme. Students have more access to learning materials and have a guarantee that should they perform well at school, they would have financial assistance to support them through university.
  • In 2022, Msimbati Secondary School (the Secondary School nearest to the Wentworth’s gas operations) was able to have the highest number of students achieve a pass-rate at the national examinations. For the first time since the start of the school, 60 students have achieved a pass rate. This means all 60 students are now eligible for entry at university.
