IN EVERY TEN FAMILIES WHICH WERE AFFECTED BY DAR ES SALAAM FLOODING, EACH OF EIGHT FAMILIES HAD AT LEAST A CHILD AT SCHOOL.

BACKGROUND

In January 2012,ENVAYA (www.envaya.org) which is an electronic platform of grassroots CSOs in Tanzania to its members the idea of conducting a survey regarding the recent Dar es salaam flooding to assess the effect of flooding in terms of dwellers’properties,water services, income and infrastructures.PELO was among the organizations which participated on the exercise. But since the much concentration of PELO is on Education it went further by assessing the effect of flooding in terms of schooling of children. The survey of PELO revealed that in every ten families that are found to have been affected by flooding, it is only two families which could be found to have no children at school thus pupil/student. The remaining eight families each has at least one child at school.That means the recent flooding has affected academic performance of a big number of children.
