Building a Playground for a Pre-School in Tanzania

$2,375 of $2,000 goal

#TZLEAP
We are nine students from Northwood School in Lake Placid, NY, USA. Our LEAP (Learn, Engage, Apply, Perform) course this year is Service and Safari in Tanzania. We will be in Tanzania from May 19 - 26, 2019.  We are partnering with a local preschool in Mto wa Mbu to build a playground for the children of the school.

Your donation will help us raise $2,000 in order to purchase and install a complete playground similar to those we enjoyed when we were their age. We will buy all of the materials from a local Tanzanian company, ensuring all of the money raised will support the local economy.  $2,000 is our basic fundraising goal, which will allow us to purchase and install a simple playground structure for children to swing, slide and climb on. Playground structures are modular, so if we raise more (and we hope we will), then we can add additional  feature(s).

When we are in Tanzania, we will tour the school,  meet and play with the children who will use the playground, and prepare the site where it will be installed.

We hope you will support our efforts to improve the lives of these Tanzanian schoolchildren.

Thank you!

- Rintaro, Peter, Brian, Emily, Scotty, Lucas, Braelyn, Mateo, and Noah

Thank you so much for your donation! Today after lunch, the students in the “Service and Safari in Tanzania” LEAP course gathered to practice our Swahili, learn about bartering and buying things in Tanzania, review that packing list, and record this thank you note to you. Because of your generosity, we will be building a beautiful playground for the students at Boma Community School in Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania. Asante!
