Supporting Schools in Tanzania

The mission of Tanzania Education Corporation, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) public corporation, is to provide financial support for selected English-language based primary and secondary schools in Tanzania.

The school we have identified to support is:

Tumaini Junior School.

Karatu, Tanzania

Tumaini Junior School is a private, non-profit school. Mr. Modest Bayo and his wife, Lightness, opened the school in 2005 with 17 nursery students. Eight years later, Tumaini has grown to more than 570 students in pre-primary through primary level 7 (equivalent to 8th grade in the US).

What makes Tumaini special? Its track record of success.

1.     In 2011, six years after its founding, Tumaini placed first out of 90 schools in the Karatu District and 69th out of 15,051 schools in the entire nation.

2.     Tumaini teaches all classes in English as compared to all public, primary schools which teach in Swahili. This prepares the students for secondary school where all subjects are taught in English.

3.     100% of Tumaini‚Äôs graduates have placed in the top 10% of all graduating students nationwide based on the national exam.

Tumaini is a model for primary education in Tanzania.
