Lyra in Africa and the architect team Hollmén Reuter Sandman are working together on Girls’ Hostel projects for Secondary Schools in Iringa, 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 projects, 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 dormitories were completed in Nyang'oro (October 2018) and Ilambilole (April 2020), and the plans for the next ones are under way.
