Karibu!  (Welcome)

 


Read, Lead, Succeed!
 In 2011 we 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 to over 30 children.  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 accept bright children who cannot afford school fees.  Most of our children live with their single mothers or grandmothers 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 and their families 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 our 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 difference 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 and first two classrooms has begun!  We hope it to be completed by the end of 2015 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 achieve it!
