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 and boarding items 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, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a list of students in need of sponsorship. Or, if you would like us to pair you with a student, click below.
Building a Relationship with your Sponsored Student
Write to your Student
Our students love to hear from you! You can send letters directly to our address in Tanzania,
P.O. Box 312, Karatu, Arusha, Tanzania.
From the states, a typical letter costs $1.15 in postage, or three Forever stamps. If it is a larger letter, between one and two oz, it will be $1.98 or four Forever stamps. We will then deliver the letter and work with our students to write timely responses so you can stay in touch.
Throw a Fruit Party
In place of individual gifts, we encourage sponsors to donate $50 in honor of their student for a school Fruit Party! We will purchase fruit (typically oranges, watermelon, and bananas) for all boarding students as a Sunday treat in the name of your student.
To donate, click here and in the notes, be sure to write your student's name and that the donation is for a Fruit Party.
Meet A Sponsored Student
The #1 girl student in Tanzania is from Tumaini School!
Given Cosmas, a 13 year old Tumaini Junior School student, took First Place among all the girls who sat for the National Exam, and Third Place overall. Almost a million students sat for the Exam, and Given received the third highest score. What better proof of the great job that Tumaini Junior School is doing to educate the future leaders of Tanzania.
