The government of United Republic of Tanzania has received 47 US teachers who will join with other Tanzanian Secondary school teachers to teach in schools allocated.
In a short introductory ceremony held in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Permanent Secretary of President’s Office, Public Service Management, Mr George Nyambesi said American teachers have come in right time as the government tries as much as possible to reduce the challenge of shortage of teachers.
“I’m sure our fellow peace corps’ teachers will help the government to increase the number of teachers in Tanzanian Schools. On behalf of the government I thank you, Mr Ambassador for your cooperation which automatically has resulted into this project.”
The US Ambassador, Alfonso E. Lenhardt said they will continue to cooperate with Tanzania in different sectors such as economic, health and educational sector that’s why the country has sent 47 teachers.
“This event shows how US is committed to help Tanzanian educational sector.” Ambassador Lenhardt said.
The new teachers took an oath yesterday in Dar es Salaam, after completing two months Kiswahili course in which they got chance of being familiar with Tanzanians’ culture.
