An Earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter Scale struck Bukoba area in NW Tanzania, on 10th September 2016. 17 people died and over 1200 houses, hospitals, schools and churches were reduced to rubble, including projects we have been supporting for many years. Many roads have also been destroyed. For a country as poor as Tanzania it is a major blow and people desperately need your help now.

Following our recent funding support for repairs to infrastructure and equipment in three schools we have recently received a request for support from Lugoye Government Secondary School in the worse hit area, Missenyi District where three classroom are still unusable after 11 months due to lack of funds. We are seeking 3500 to help them rebuild these classrooms so students can start lessons again. Please help if possible. The need is great.


We will work with our local partners on the ground and the local government to ensure that schools can reopen as soon as possible so students can resume their education.

Long-Term Impact

Currently we are working with two government secondary schools that have been particularly badly affected, meaning over 1000 students are not accessing the education they are entitled to, which is their only means of escaping the extreme poverty of their communities.
