As a direct result of the learning facilities, the Library and the Resource Centre, Tuende Pamoja has been able to provide in Matipwili the following excellent results have been obtained:
in 2010 Matipwili Primary School was positioned 84th out of 124 schools in the district in terms of results.
In 2013 they were 34th and in 2014 they expect to lie 20th out of 124 schools
For the last 3 years running over 90% of the kids doing their Standard 7 (primary leaving) exams, have passed and qualified to continue on to secondary.
This remarkable improvement attracted the attention of the District Education Officer who recently came to the village with his team to see if the village was "cooking" the results.
Luckily he found, to no ones surprise but his, that the results relate to some dedicated teachers with some resources at their disposal.
The rapid rise is extraordinary in Tanzania and their improved ranking has not only motivated the teachers but the student's parents as well who are proud to be partners in their children's success and provides assurance to donors that their efforts are not in vein.
They are all now aiming to go on and become the number one school in the district, an aim inconceivable even 3 years ago.
