ELIET PRE&PRIMARY ENGLISH MEDIUM SCHOOL
ELIET is a school in Haydom, located about 300 km southwest of Arusha. There is the hospital (Haydom Lutheran Hospital – HLH), founded in 1955 by Norwegian Lutheran missionaries. At present it belongs to the Lutheran Church in Tanzania, which also takes care of its operation. However, there was no school in the city where children would access quality and good education. Such a school was a wish of hospital staff, parents from the city and its surroundings. Emanuel Nuwass, director of HLH, and Martin Tango, director of LEA Lutheran School in Dongobesh, took the idea. They both came out of poverty, and the idea of a high-quality school with spiritual provision for poor children inspired and linked them. Emanuel took a loan from the bank, built a school, and Martin filled it with students from Haydom and the surrounding area.
The owners of the school are Emanuel Nuwass and Martin Tango. It is clear from the name of the school that ElLIET is both a kindergarten and a primary school. The word ELIET originated as an abbreviation of the initial letters of the English words EnLight, Innovate, Empowering and Transform.

The main aim of the school is to prepare quality and educated young people for Tanzania and thus ensure a better future for them. The school should be different from those in Haydom. There should be innovation, enlightenment and change.
The school motto is: „Time effort and excellence foundation for future success.“
The school is duly registered by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in Tanzania under registration number EM 17940 as a non-profit organization. It consists of two blocks. Each has three classes and one office. The third block serves the administration. It has a library, three offices, two toilets. Other buildings are toilets for pupils and school kitchen. The school has 200 pupils, 14 teachers and 4 administrative staff.
Pupils pay tuition fees of about $ 450 per year. This amount includes meals, materials needed for teaching and transport to and from the school by booked bus. There are about 20 pupils in the school that no one supports. For children who live far away, street children and children from incomplete families, would be to live in dormitory. Its construction is currently not planned, because there are no financial resources. However, the dormitory is a vision for the future.
Support for a pupil from Slovakia would be a maximum of € 30 per month and would last for 7 years. The school also participates in pupil support.
