Empowering our students to learn, lead and succeed
In 2011 The Tanzania School Foundation founded the School of St. Nicholas in the village of Moivaro Tanzania. We began with twelve five year old children immersing them in an all English Classroom.
Today, we provide 100% free, quality education, uniforms, shoes, back packs, books, pencils, games and creative learning tools. We provide them breakfast daily and quarterly worm medication to keep those parasites away. We hire trained and educated teachers and staff.
We began the School of St. Nicholas to educate disadvantaged children who could not afford school fees. We only accept children born into extreme poverty. Most of our children live with their single mothers in a one room rented hut with no internal plumbing, electricity or toilets. It is through education that we will end the cycle of poverty for themselves, their families and communities in the years to come.
Without an official school building, our students began their education in the living room of a rented house. Our students arrive at school early every day. They come with eager anticipation to receive an education. The School of St. Nicholas is an academically challenging environment, we are happy to see out students thriving. It is a blessing for us to see the daily, weekly and monthly growth of our students. One child at a time, WE are making a differnece in their lives. With your help we can do so much more.
In March 2013 we began building an official school! With over 100 children on our waiting list we are growing leaps and bounds. Construction on our administrative office began and our first two classrooms will begin construction with your help. It is our goal to build new classrooms every year for the next twelve years to insure our students complete secondary school.
It is an ambitious goal, with your help we will acheive it!
