Since the government is not able to provide a basic schooling facility for about 700 children, the Matopeni community took action by building 5 temporary classrooms using tin sheets. These classrooms serve the neediest children in the community.
Thank you for joining the Matopeni village. Matopeni is a swahili word which means in Mud. The government has neglected this community as far as development is concerned. We have poor infrastructure, no government school (Public Schools).
Many of the men in the Matopeni village are involved in carpentry such as making timber beds, tables, chairs, stools, etc. Some make mosaics and collages, carve curios, tie dye, batik and make traditional ornaments which can be sold to tourists, at local hotels and also to the general community.
