Our apartments at Camp Holland
In addition to the school, the EOTAS Foundation has also built an apartment complex called Camp Holland. We have built this complex with the aim of generating income for the school.
People who come to live, study and work in Dodoma for a short or long period can and stay with us at Camp Holland. We use the rent for the apartments to keep the school running. This complex consists of 11 apartments, which are fully furnished and equipped with hot water for showers, toilet, kitchen and bedroom. The complex is equipped with a reserve water tank, so that water is almost always available. Thanks to the fact that the complex is in the same district as the houses of a number of ministers, electricity is almost always available.

The complex is paved, so it is less dusty and there are several beautiful seating areas under the trees on the compound. We have a number of friendly dogs on the compound who also serve as watchdogs and help make the compound as safe as possible.
The accommodation costs are divided into the following components:
- The ‘rent’, which in reality is a monthly donation for our school for the deaf, with which we can ensure that in 2020 about 130 deaf children can receive education and good care.
- Maintenance and weekly cleaning. Normal repairs and maintenance are done by ourselves so that you don’t have any hidden costs, like in many other houses in Dodoma.
- • 24 hour security.
- Gas water and electricity. Consumption is measured per apartment. With normal consumption that is on average around Tsh75,000 / – per month.
Our Dodoma Deaf School continues to grow and the children at our school perform relatively well compared to other Tanzanian children in regular schools. Thanks to our guests at Camp Holland in Dodoma, we receive the necessary additional income to the sponsoring of the deaf children at our school. Without income from renting our apartments, many children today would not be able to go to school to receive quality education. And because these deaf children are not accepted in a regular school, they simply would not receive any education. They would have been subject to anyone or anything without any rights. Unfortunately, in practice it is the case that a child without official registration at a school immediately loses all other protection, because in principle the child falls outside of the system. Thanks to our sponsors and visitors to Camp Holland, we can offer many deaf children education and good protection.
