BACKGROUND

Information about Jambo Bukoba:

Jambo Bukoba is an NGO, founded in Germany in 2008, and works in collaboration with Tanzanian local government. Jambo Bukoba supports children and young people in Kagera, Tanzania, by teaching them about the prevention of HIV, by encouraging equal opportunities for girls and by helping to improve the quality of education. We create a framework for teaching sport and the development of children through games, because we believe that sport is the best means of making children and young people strong and healthy so that they can cope with the harsh realities of daily life and so that they learn to behave responsibly towards themselves and others as a preparation for life.

1. During 5-day training sessions called “Life Skills through Games“ sports teachers learn games which can help educate pupils about HIV/AIDS and further develop their social skills. In addition, general teaching skills such as planning and structuring a games lesson and how to conduct a lesson are fundamental parts of the training. The programme is the fruit of eight months’ work by Sebastian Rockefeller, who is a specialist in Sport and Development and who was commissioned to work for Jambo Bukoba by the German Foreign Office and the German Olympic Federation in conjunction with the German Sports University in Cologne. “Life Skills through Games” is designed to meet the needs and conditions on the ground in Tanzania. It brings together both the teaching philosophy and the practical requirements of the teacher training programme.

2. After the workshops schools get the chance to participate in a sports competition called Bonanza.

Through the competitions, we have an incentive and a method to observe the quality in which the teachers were teaching the content of the workshop of “Life Skills through Games” in their schools. Therefore, the Bonanzas are not so much about sporting success but more about fair play and gender equality. We place great emphasis on equality and in particular the strengthening of the girls. A team is made out of 30 students, of which at least 50% are girls. Each Bonanza includes 180 participating students. The finalists of the districts qualify for the finals in the city of Bukoba.

3. All schools, which win their District-Bonanza are rewarded with a cooperation for a school building project. This can be a renovation of classrooms, the building of libraries, toilets, water tanks with hand washing facilities or whatever the schools decide. We then cooperate with the school whereby Jambo Bukoba covers 75% (up to 4.000.000 TZS) of the building costs and the schools with their district and community are covering 25%. This contribution does not have to be money, it can also contain working power or building materials.

4. In 2016 we started a pilot project for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) in eight schools. Therefore, again in cooperation with the school and community, we are providing a rainwater tank, a handwashing facility, and hygiene education.
For the future, we are planning to extend the Jambo Bukoba principles to other regions. Moreover, we are working on a follow-up concept for youth after primary school which is called Jambo Bukoba Campus.
