Tanzania: Braeburn Opens 'Purpose Built Home' Facilities

Braeburn boarders celebrate the opening of their new purpose built home.

With spectacular views of Mount Meru and the Monduli hills, the impressive three storey building caused quite a stir! Visitors gathered for its opening recently and were shown around by the home residents.

Dubbed as the best boarding home in East Africa, this million dollar investment, boasts ensuite bedrooms, wireless internet, three lounges and two purpose built study areas.

A real sense of space is created through high ceilings, large windows and airy rooms. Yet DSTV, wholesome home cooking and a wide array of books and games continue to make the place feel like 'home'.

"It's as good as any boarding facility in Europe," one impressed visitor commented. With a pool table and a gym on its spacious upstairs balcony, it is easy to see why the boarders from 10 different countries of the world, are so happy with their new home.

With accommodation for 48 students, the home will never become too big or impersonal, guaranteeing that it is what it promises to be: 'Home away from home!"

Situated in a four acre plot dotted with trees, they have lots of space to unwind and relax at the end of a busy school day. "It is much better than taking a long bus journey across town," commented Brown, the school head boy. Another student agreed and added: "It's easier to concentrate in prep time now, as we are not so tired and there are more teachers near by to give us the support and help that we need."

With a five minute walk down the hill to school, students can now take advantage of the outdoor pool and shaded basketball court in their spare time. The weekend continues to be filled with activities such as horse riding in nearby Olasiti, roller skating, swimming and shopping.
