Why sponsor a child through TSF?

Sponsoring a child with the Tanzania School Foundation is unique because we look at all the things that prevent children from surviving and thriving in their community.   With Christine on the ground in Tanzania half the year, your donation brings all the pieces of the puzzle together to build a better future for all children.

You can exchange letters and photos, and even visit your sponsored child, but we don’t just give sponsored children cash every month. Instead, we pool monthly sponsorship donations and leverage them for maximum impact. We call this our community development approach.
