Secondary School

Whilst most Tanzanian children complete primary school, 40% of young people do not have the opportunity to attend secondary school. Whilst secondary school is nominally free, the additional costs of uniform, educational resources, school meals and transport can present a major obstacle for orphans, street children and those estranged from their families and living with friends.

Our sponsorship programme gives young people the opportunity to attend secondary school. From the outset, we ensure that young people do not face any direct financial barriers to succeed in their education. They also live on-site at our youth hostel so that we can maximise the positive impact on their education and life skills training.

Sponsorship for a secondary school student starts from £25/month.

Full sponsorship includes:

  • On-Site Accommodation (including bed, mattress, bed sheets and mosquito net)
  • Hygiene Products
  • Clothing (school uniform, sports kit and clothing for out of school)
  • Books & School Stationery
  • Daily Meals (3 healthy meals and an after-school snack)
  • Additional Classes & Tuition
  • Extra-curricular Activities
  • Field Trips (2 per year)
  • Medical Insurance
  • Pastoral Care

To sponsor a secondary school student, please email for our updated waiting list of young people.
