Model Schools Program

Project Zawadi's Model Schools program works with communities and schools to ensure students have a productive and enjoyable day at school.

Project Zawadi is currently working with a pilot group of four government primary schools. The program is directed by an intensive community and school planning iniative. We pool knowledge, resources, personnel, and energy to address the following needs:

  • Infrastructure
  • Teaching materials
  • Staff professional development
  • Student and family support
  • Academic and career counseling
  • Enrichment activities
  • Girls' Empowerment
  • Student hunger

...and more! Learn more about what we're doing at each of our four Model Schools by clicking the button below.


Other Partner Schools

Core Schools

Core Schools are located in the Nyamuswa area and have historically worked in partnership with Project Zawadi.  They maintain a cohort of Project Zawadi sponsored students, provide access to Project Zawadi program staff, and provide some additional support services to sponsored students.  In return, limited infrastructure projects, teacher training, and teaching and learning materials were provided to the schools.

Sister Schools

In 2017, the first Project Zawadi sister school relationships were established between Tanzania and the USA.  Sister schools are an opportunity to connect students and teachers and promote cultural exchange and awareness through the sharing of letters, photos, and video chats.
