It’s not just our beautiful children who are growing like weeds, after only our first year of operation our school is ready for some new classrooms. Our fundraising goal for this next extension is $20,000. Please contact us if you would like to help us reach our goal and start adding classrooms, or Adopt-a-Classroom (or wing) and name it after a company, group or a loved one!

This growth is accelerating even faster due to a fortuitous turn of events as the Tanzanian government have purchased the neighbouring plot of land and are building a Regional Municipal Administrative building.
