Peace Matunda Organisation was founded in 2000 by Unambwe Zephania Kaaya, a professional wildlife guide and community leader. Due to the difficulties he saw facing the local people ‘Kaaya’ initiated the project for the benefit of his community, providing jobs through cultural tourism and safaris of the local area. In 2005 Kaaya opened the door of his family home to five children from the area that were without family support. Not long after this, the first primary class opened on site and the building of the first orphanage dormitory began.
After a lot of hard work and many generous donations, 6 years on Peace Matunda School is now a fully functioning primary school; currently classes range from Baby class, Kindergarten through to STD V and the next two years will see the opening of STD VI and STD VII classes.
Peace Matunda follows the Tanzanian curriculum and teaches all subjects apart from Kiswahili in the English language. All the teachers are Tanzanian and work tirelessly to provide a well-rounded education for the children there.
