EDUCATION FOR SELF-RELIANCE
KNOWLEDGE DISCIPLINE INTEGRITY
WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We welcome you to our new website which is one of many ways through which the Congregation of the Holy Ghost (Spiritans) shares practical involvement in the educational mission of the church for the integral formation of the Children of Tanzania.
THE CONGREGATION OF HOLY GHOST FATHERS (SPIRITANS)
The first members of the Congregation arrived in Bagamoyo in 1868. The year 2018 is exactly one hundred and fifty years since these great missionaries arrived in Bagamoyo. It is safe to mention that this year is a great Jubilee of 150 years of formal education in Tanzania. The Province of Tanzania is a local branch of the worldwide Congregation of the Holy Ghost which was founded in 1703. By providing quality education, the Congregation seeks to promote human dignity, liberation of minds and empowerment of the most abandoned. Spiritans believe in education as the single most powerful weapon against poverty. It is our belief that good education gives people the skills to improve their lives and it gives them a voice to effectively express their views and concerns of the society.

ABOUT HOLY GHOST SECONDARY SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
Education for the children with disabilities is one of the Missions of the Congregation in which the presence of the deaf children in our school is just a small gesture in the option for the poor. Deaf Children is a group of people which is less considered when it comes to planning for educational and social- economic services in most of our societies. The number of primary and secondary schools for the deaf is minimum comparing to the rest of the population. In most of the African society’s children with disabilities are considered a misfortune with the exception of a few who respect and show them love. Our website will provide some awareness about the need to care for the children with disabilities in our Society.
