Mission: EfforTZ is an all-volunteer nonprofit that works to provide a quality education to Tanzania's children so that they may have better lives and contribute to the betterment of their communities and country. We strive to advance the educational opportunities of these children by providing scholarships to attend primary, pre-secondary, and secondary schools as well as vocational schools and institutions of higher learning. Our scholarships cover tuition as well as the costs of medical care, clothing, school transportation and, where necessary, room and board.
Results: We have helped over 4,000 children through our literacy program. We have also provided our 6 partner primary schools with 620 pounds of school supplies, and 2,600 books. In 2013 we will have 28 multi-year scholarship students.
Target demographics: Impoverished children in Tanzania, including orphaned and abandoned boys and girls of the Maasai tribe.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 4,000
Geographic areas served: Tanzania, East Africa
Programs: SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM: Provide student scholarships to children who are unable to attend school because they are orphaned or abandoned, their families are too poor to send them, and they are part of a tribal culture that does not value education. Our scholarship students attend boarding schools or public day schools, depending on their circumstances. LITERACY PROGRAM: The Tanzanian government requires students to pass an English exam to enter secondary school. Yet the primary schools rarely have more than one English book per classroom and few supplies. Through this program we provide public primary and secondary schools with much needed English books plus pencils, papers, eraser, crayons and man other supplies. In addition, our volunteer educators go into the schools and provide students with enrichment activities that help faciliate English comprehension. These activities are not only fun for the students but they impart imiportant English language skills.
