Tanzania Education Fund
Tanzania is a stable East African democracy, but it is a very poor country. Many children don’t attend school simply because there are very few schools in existence.
Some 300 students now attend Nianjema. Already, the students are testing exceptionally well on national exams — in the top 10 percent in the country — and many of the students in the first graduating classes have gone on to college. The school accepts an equal number of girls and boys.
“Tanzania is very proud of this school,” Tanzanian Ambassador Ombeni Sefue said at a recent reception in the U.S. “It is making a real difference to Tanzanians, particularly to our young girls.”
The school is supported primarily by donations to the Tanzania Education Fund. One hundred percent of all donations are sent to the school. Over the years, these donations have built an impressive educational institution — one that is considered one of the best in Tanzania. The school now has three large classroom buildings, science and computer labs, a library, two large dormitories, and housing for teachers. More buildings are under construction and enrollment is expected to soon double.
