2015- Hostels for girls in Iringa region, Tanzania
Lyra in Africa and the architect team Hollmén Reuter Sandman are working together
on a project for Hostels for girls in Secondary Schools in Iringa region, Tanzania. First
executed hostel opened in October 2018 in Nyang’oro Secondary School, Iringa rural,
Tanzania. Lyra in Africa is providing the funding for the construction of the hostel
facilities, whereas Hollmén Reuter Sandman are providing the architectural design.
Sustainable, environmentally and culturally appropriate architecture is vitally
important for the success of the Lyra’s hostel project, and it will set a standard in the
future projects in the area. It will also have a strong impact on the community by
allowing them to engage in the design and construction on the hostel, thus
strengthening their economy, social status and vitality. The first dormitory was finished in
2018 and the plans for the next ones are under way.
