Sponsor a Student

Families pay only a modest tuition to send their children to Tumaini Schools. Yet, many Tumaini families experience financial hardships because of crop failure, disease, divorce or death. Tanzania Education Corp pairs donors with a Tumaini student with a demonstrated financial need. To date, Tanzania Education Corp has paired over 125 students with sponsors.

A $1,500 sponsorship provides a student with tuition, school uniforms, school supplies, boarding items and medical care for a year. In return, sponsors receive student-written letters, photos and updates. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, or for more information, click to send an email to Laurie at

We are constantly in need of new books to keep our students engaged.

To purchase new books that students have requested, visit our Amazon Wishlist.


Help Equip our Science Classes

Help Tumaini Secondary School students “barcode” the living organisms around their school and beyond. For a new science course in January students will characterize and perhaps even discover new organisms in their local environment by characterizing their DNA. Help us purchase the lab equipment needed for this project! Send to 9 Norfolk Road, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 or donate the amount of the kit here.

We will supply tax letter for donation amount.
