The secondary schools of Lwengo district

TASTE staff talk to students while visiting a school

Establishing this project has involved collecting a considerable amount of information about the schools of Lwengo district. We want to make this available to any organisations or individuals who might find it useful, and that is the purpose of this page. It lists the schools of the district, where they are and how many pupils they have. For each of these schools we also have contact details and an assessment of lab facilities. If you are interested in this information, please contact us, as we do not have permission to make it publicly available but are very happy to share it on a case by case basis.

The data on this page was collected in 2011 or 2012; please contact us if you feel there is a school we have missed. The map below shows schools for which we have exact GPS coordinates, for others approximate locations are given in the table. Many of the roads shown on the map were mapped by TASTE during our initial research.

We currently have GPS locations for around half of these schools. They are shown below on Google Maps and Mapbox Open Streetmap at the top of the page. We are contributing the routes to the schools, some of which are absent from Google Maps, to OpenStreetMap.
