The Pi-oneer is an innovative teaching tool consisting of a Pi computer with RACHEL educational content including math and science videos, a mobile projector and a solar recharging unit. Teachers can bring the Pi computer and projector into their classroom and display materials for their students.
By funding the first Pi-oneer and bearing the light of knowledge to a remote area, Tanzania Postal Bank is planting potent seeds in fertile ground which will produce the delicious fruit of educated citizens.
Pioneer: inventor or innovator; a person or group who is the first to do something or who leads in developing something new; one who is first among the earliest in any field of inquiry, enterprise, or progress.

The Powering Potential Pi-oneer was introduced at Education Week in Dodoma, Tanzania on May 3 in a briefing for H.E. Mizengo Pinda, Prime Minister.
The theme of Education Week was "Quality education is possible for all; play your role." Tanzania Postal Bank led by Mr. Sabasaba Moshingi is playing a vital role in bringing quality education to the Serengeti District.
Powering Potential is inspired by their example. Are you a Tanzanian? Would you like a Pi-oneer in a particular school? Powering Potential will do it with you bega kwa bega. We'll pay half and you pay half of the $2,000-$2,500 needed (depending on travel distance) to provide a Pi-oneer to a school (purchase, deliver, install, and train).
