Dear Friend,

Christmas is approaching and it’s time to think about presents. We have a suggestion for you: Help us to help the children and youths in Tanzania!

For almost 6 years we have been running a development project within the deaf unit at Meru Primary School and the results are outstanding. The students’ marks have significantly improved and a majority now achieve the standard required for moving on to study at the next level.

During the last 6 years, we have built a new learning centre supplied with up to date technology (a big thank you to those supporting us!). We have provided training in special needs pedagogy and given teachers operational guidance in the application of information technology. We have also acquired various educational games, books, other learning equipment and provided pupils with school uniforms, socks, shoes and bags.

Recently our operation has extended outside the city of Arusha to the Masai village of Ngoswak, where from March 2018 pupils have been provided with breakfast and lunch at school. Since the launch of this project, the number of pupils has risen from around 420 to 620. Previously the school had no disabled pupils, but the food is an excellent inducement – the school now has 8 disabled pupils. This clearly indicates the conditions children there are living in.

A year’s supply of school meals for one pupil costs 30 Euros. Local villagers see to sourcing the cooking fuel (wood) and catering.

All donations will go directly and IN FULL to the recipients. We operate totally voluntarily and without remuneration.
