Your belief in the potential of children and youth is at the heart of everything we do!

The fall months are our most important fundraising months; helping us set the stage for a new academic year in Tanzania. To keep the mission going and growing Project Zawadi needs to raise at least $200,000 by November 30, 2022. You can support real change for:

  • 300 sponsored students in primary through university levels;
  • 407 teachers (serving 27,000 students) receiving professional development training & support through our Tenda Teachers program;
  • 10,000 community members and students benefiting from improvements at their four primary schools.

Whether your support is directed to the General Fund (which is directed to the greatest need), to sponsor a student, or to underwrite an initiative (as outlined in our Wish List below); you are directly impacting the lives of thousands of students in Tanzania. Thank you!

Profile in Empowerment: Mukambati Rashid, Apprenticeship Program Graduate

We invite you to meet Makumbati. He is just one example of the many students empowered by Project Zawadi. Orphaned at age 6, Project Zawadi has financially supported his education since 2008. After finishing secondary school, he embraced Project Zawadi’s Apprenticeship Program. Makumbati is now a successful welder with plans to teach others how to weld.  Your support makes stories like Makumbati’s possible.
