“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela
Are you looking for a slightly different Christmas present for family and friends this year? Do not you want to give away an item, which in the worst case anyway only dusts on the shelf?
Then take part in our Christmas campaign for disadvantaged Maasai children in Siwandeti, a village near Arusha.
Overall, we need 40,000 Euro to make a better future possible for nearly 100 children.
This Christmas campaign aims to help reaching our goal!
In Tanzania, there are no government funded or free kindergartens/nursery schools. Many children are not receiving any pre-school education leaving them behind in the education system compared to children from richer families.
When children start Primary School the gap is clearly visible: Children who received pre-school education can read, write, do simple mathematics and speak basic English, making it very hard for children from poorer families to keep up and receive the same good marks in school.
We are very keen to give these children a place where they have access to education, have the freedom to express childlike behavior, learn social skills and have a chance for a better future.
The area we choose for our nursery school is called Siwandeti, an village in Arusha District. A rather remote place where many indigenous and marginalized Maasai families live. Here we see a high need for pre- school education, offering the children opportunities that are closer to their homes.
