MADC Technical College Tanzania

My name is James Frank Natai from Killimanjaro, Tanzania. I'm raising money to build a technical collage called Maisha Arts Development Centre. The reason I'm doing this is to give back to my community and the village that I was born in.  I have seen a big gap in the education system that Tanzania follows. The main problem is that the youth are not going to school because they are lacking money or don't have enough support from their families.

Our mission is to improve a community by educating a population of unprivileged youth especially girls that wouldn’t have a chance to further their education.  We are taking a huge leap this year because we want to reach a large population of youth in one place. When the technical school is finished we will have the copacity to give 200 students an education. I started this organization because I want to help the community through life and arts activities. By doing this I found that this improves the confidence of the youth and gives them new opportunities. We are going to give a student a basic skill that will set them apart from others so they can reach their goals. This will also help the students provide for themselves and their families. Learning vocational skills like welding, tailoring and basic computer skills will allow the students to earn higher paying  jobs or become a successful entrepreneur. 

This is phase I of the grassroots project MADC. 

The technical college will start by building the following:
-Foundation for 3 classrooms. $11,304
-Water well that will provide drinking water.  $4,903
-Water tank $3,107
-PVC pipe for plumming and gutters. $150
-Container for storage. $2,010
-Mid sized generator $996
-Electricty $1,480
-Water pump $1,050
