Our Mission:

To Ensure Tanzanian Children And Youth Have Access To A Quality Education.

Our Strategy

Project Zawadi learns from and collaborates with Tanzanian communities, schools and teachers to design and deliver effective initiatives that are sustainable, replicable and culturally relevant.

Our Guiding Principles

  • Access to a quality education is a human right.
  • A quality education addresses the needs of the whole child--physical, emotional, social and intellectual.
  • Change takes time and requires a long-term commitment.
  • Vulnerable children need the cultural and familial stability provided by their communities and schools.
  • Designing effective community-owned programs requires attention to how gender, class, race, and historical legacies impact our work as well as respect for local knowledge, expertise, and culture.

Our Core Values

  • Teamwork
  • Passion for the Work
  • Respect for Community
  • Commitment to Equity
  • Resilience and Drive
