In June 2018, I will be going with 15 students from my school, the International School of Geneva La Châtaigneraie, to Tanzania to help the Watu Secondary School and Dare women's Foundation in Moshi.
The school needs a new classroom, more school supplies and help with new technology. For this trip, I am raising funds to make this project happen.
The Watu Secondary School in the north of Tanzania was founded in 2006 by a local Tanzanian teacher and several teachers from the International School of Geneva. The purpose-built school allows Tanzanian children from disadvantaged backgrounds to get a good education. The school now has 150 students, from 12 to 20 years old, and a Montessori kindergarten class.
The International School of Geneva has been collaborating with the Watu Secondary School for several years and been able to help the school each year. This year, my group plans to fund a new classroom and provide school supplies. We will also support the students with language learning and help them integrate new technology in their education.
During or after the trip, I will be sending out an update and lots of pictures to show you what difference your donation has made.
Please support me for this project and this trip to Tanzania and donate any amount possible.
The website is completely safe to use and the money will be transferred to a Swiss bank account where we collect the money. All donations are tax deductible.
I am sure that many of you receive numerous emails asking for donations for various causes, but please be assured that any donation, big or small, will make a huge difference in reaching my goal. Even if you cannot donate, I would be very grateful if you could forward this email to other people. Every donation counts!
Thank you so much in advance for your support and donation,
