Student Sponsorships

Education Brings Hope


,The Value of Student Sponsorships:

  • Provides youth with a worldview of life’s possibilities
  • Empowers youth with confidence and knowledge to realize their dreams
  • Opens up opportunities for young people
  • Develops communities

Secondary School (High School):

  • A student who finishes an ordinary level (Form 4) is eligible for a trade school degree program
  • A student who finishes advanced level (Form 6) is eligible for a university bachelor’s program

Trade School:

  • With a two-year trade school certificate, a single parent can support their family

College and University:

  • Students may attain associates, bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees

With all student sponsorships, you will receive letters from your sponsored student as well as regular progress reports on their academic grades and national exams. You can even visit your student and attend graduation!

The cost of student sponsorships will vary between $800 and $1200 per year depending on the school attended by your student.

When you choose to sponsor a student, you build a relationship with that student.  We hope your intent is to sponsor that student yearly as far as the student’s education journey goes. 

For those who prefer not to commit to a yearly sponsorship, one time donations are welcome.  Those donations will be placed into an emergency fund to help cover students who do not have long term sponsors. 

Secondary Schools

(High Schools)

Only 30% of all Tanzanian boys and girls age 13-17 years can attend ordinary level secondary school, and only 3% of Tanzanian kids age 18-20 go on to attend advanced level. Language is one barrier to education. Students coming from public primary schools are taught in Swahili, while all secondary schools are taught in English. But the cost is the biggest obstacle that keeps students from continuing their educations. Your sponsorship will allow more Tanzanian boys and girls to get a good education and seize the future.

In Tanzania, the English system is used.  The first four years are the “ordinary levels” or O-levels.  The 2nd two years are called “advanced levels” or A-levels. So there are six years of secondary school required before advancing to higher education.
