Ndanda (Masasi Mtwara), Peramiho (Songea), Tanzania
Synopsis and Position
Ndanda is a significant centre with both a long written and oral history. The Project will help the Abbey and the community at large to preserve this heritage. The archive will be an eye-opener for the students and researchers. It will assist them in broadening their knowledge on the history of the community. Slowly students will own their narratives. The community will have a new modern system in which they can preserve their historical past. Through digitalization, the Ndanda community will be united with the international community regarding historic preservation.
Objectives and Method
The project will increase the use of the primary sources available in history in education. The project will develop interest to students tours to the area and to use the archival facilities available. The project will involve searching for Historical documents which were created in distant past. The archival materials are situated in Ndanda and Peramiho. This will give us access to materials which would otherwise not known to the community at large. This will include a broad range of activities which will be applied to documents and the textual materials available.
Workshops and Events
Saturday 26th November 2022 is a proposed date to display some of the archival materials to a group of students here at Ndanda.
