Promotion of Education Link Organisation (PELO)

Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

The establishment of the organisation reflect back to two individuals,Mr Julius Muungano and the late Venance Joseph who were inspired to support in and out of school youths who were performing badly in their studies due to poor background of english.In 1990s Mr Julius Muungano and Mr Venance Joseph were teaching at different vocational training institution but they were experiencing the same problem of failure of their students to understand well what they were teaching.In their processes of thinking of the intervention,they found that the problem has an implication to education for self-reliance which is the philosophy of the founder of the nation Mwalimu J.k Nyerere.They conceived the idea of establishing an organisation that could strenghen their english language capability on way to advocating for education for self-reliance to be practiced,the idea which they shared with their close friends and collegues who supported and developed it to the stage of processing of the registration of the organisation.The organisation started to operate in 1998 and in 2000 it was registered under the societies ordinance with registration number SO.NO.10321 founded by ten members and in 2010 it complied with NGOs Act, 2002 with compliance certificate No.00001378.

The organisation started to operate in Dar Es Salaam and in 2004 it opened the branch in Songea district of Ruvuma region and in 2006 it opened the branch in Bukombe district of Shinyanga region.

Among the achievements of which the members of PELO are proud of is running the organisation since when it was established until 2009 without depending from donations.It was the strategy of the members of the organisations to use their teaching expertise and their own resources for conducting the activities until when the organisation members will have something to show to development stakeholders that they have done with their own efforts.This "means of achievement"strategy drove the members to conduct trainings for mobilizing resources until 2009 when they started to seek for donors for its programs.
