Help Bright School, Tanzania

Welcome to Bright School!

We are a  NGO ‌ which runs an English Medium School on the poor northern Tanzania, and helps Maasai children to have a better life through a quality education.

Maasai has a very rich culture, but youngers are prevented going to school because they must work or get married too soon.

Bright School is an affordable alternative to the low quality public schools. Because of a lack of backers, we must rely on the school fees:  2/3 of our paying students support the 1/3 that cannot afford it.

From the total of 300 students, 100 are boarders, because they are orphans, too poor, live far away or their HIV parents cannot take care of them. 

The boardinghouse challenge

We are split in two facilities, 3 km far from each other: the school and the boardinghouse.

The boarding house is great, but it has some problems:

1) We spend a lot of money transporting students between here and the school
2) The dorms are full
3) For lacking of space, we use dorms as classrooms
4) We have running water only 3 days per week
5) The worst thing: we pay rent.

How can you help us?

We must finish our new building school and move in all boarders. Here we own the land. Rent no more!

We start it in 2014 thanks to donations, but we couldn’t finish it and the building is deteriorating.
