a Tanzanian Association for Catholic Secondary Education and University

About our Association

The Association Mary Queen of Africa has been created by the company Kiswila Mineral Co ltd, which has been incorporated in Tanzania in July 2013 with the mission to create a synergic and cross fertilizing link between the world of education and the world of business.  

The mission of the company consequently embraces both:

  1. Education, more specifically Catholic Secondary education

  2. Business, in particular in the field of constructions and mining


To be one of the leading companies in Tanzania in the Catholic education sector, particularly as for the secondary school, aiming at the following tacks.

  • Goal • Make our Catholic secondary schools available, accessible and affordable to most students, including those who are poor and middle class.

  • Mission • Provide the best Catholic schools for the greatest number of children throughout Tanzania.

  • Vision • Our Vision is for an outstanding Catholic education that equips our young people with the knowledge, skills, hope and optimism to live meaningful lives and shape and enrich the world around them

The secondary education sector is becoming more competitive in Tanzania due to the increasing number of schools and to the recent decision of the Government to make free of cost the education up to level 4. The catholic schools in order to face this new scenario must reduce fees, improve their education offer to make it appeal-able and competitive. To do that it is necessary to join forces and create and exploit any possible synergy to be in a position to improve the didactic offer, to reinforce the Catholic characterization of our proposal and to reduce fees. A coordination and strict collaboration is necessary to reach this target. The Diocese of Morogoro and other investors created a Company named Kiswila also with this specific target. Kiswila is proposing itself as the vehicle for the secondary catholic schools to join forces and merge together.
