St. Pamachius

Secondary School for Special Needs Students


In Tanzania, kids with special needs are often left out of school when they reach 7th Grade. They’re left behind if they can’t fit into a mainstream school. Rejected by their families, many of these kids end up begging on the streets for the rest of their lives. The Moshi Diocese seeks to change this hard reality of life in Tanzania today and to leave no Tanzanian child behind.

We want to build and equip an inclusive high school that will educate 250 special needs right alongside 250 more typical students. All students benefit from this inclusion.  St Pamachius Inclusive Secondary School is under construction today and has already opened its doors to 74 students. The student body currently includes kids who are deaf, blind, have Albinism or are missing limbs along with typical high school kids.

We need your help

We need a total of $1,917,494 to finish the construction of St Pamachius Inclusive Secondary School. We need your help to give a child with special needs a bright future.
