Top Off a Primary School in Tanzania, Africa

The Description

These funds will put a roof on a new primary school in Tanzania, Africa!

We are an organization that for the past 10 years, has sought to provide care for orphaned and vulnerable Tanzanian children in a family-like environment (www.mavunovillage.org).

Along the way we have come face to face with the challenges to education for children in Tanzania.  These challenges include an average student to teacher ratio of 89:1, limited textbooks and classroom resources, teacher violence, and student drop-out (www.unicef.org/tanzania/education).  We have felt called to open a primary school to serve our children as well as other children in the community in future.

Our goal is to begin with a kindergarten and first grade class, and the new school year in Tanzania begins in January 2018.  We had enough funding to cover the cost of laying a foundation, pouring the floor, and putting up the walls of our classroom building, and construction crews are currently working away.

Please consider helping us to top off the building project with a roof!

Back Up Plan

Our kindergarten and first grade classes will meet in a temporary location until we have enough funds to complete our building project.
