The College was instrumental in establishing the Mvumi School Trust, which exists to provide funding and support for the teachers and students of DCT Mvumi Secondary School. This school is centered in the rural heartland of the central region of Tanzania. It was established in 1994 by the Anglican Church. The Trust is largely responsible for funding the recent reconstruction of the School. Our sponsorship scheme funds the cost of over 100 student bursaries and we also provide funds for 50 scholarships. Since the Trust was established over £1.5m has been raised for the school.
John Clark, Senior Tutor, was headmaster of Mvumi from 2006 to 2009. He is a trustee of the Trust along with the Head Master (Chairman). A number of Eton masters have spent time on sabbatical at Mvumi and a number of OEs have taught there during their gap years.
