Loyola High School in Tanzania Opens New Girls Dormitory
On March 26, 2022, Loyola High School in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony following the completion of the construction of the new Loyola Girls Hostel. Built in 1995 with over $3.9 million in grants from USAID/ASHA, and in partnership with the former Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus, Loyola High School has served as a coed Jesuit secondary school for more than 27 years. With the addition of the new girls' dorm that will accommodate 400 girls, Loyola High School is officially a boarding school, which will allow students to devote more time to their studies while avoiding long and unsafe commutes to the school. The Midwest Jesuits, in partnership with the Jesuits of Eastern Africa, are grateful to USAID/ ASHA for the $772,000 grant that made this construction project possible.
