Why your gift will change lives
It is estimated that in 2019, 5.1 million children between the ages of 7 and 17 in Tanzania were not in school. The cost of education is beyond the reach of many poor families, and girls are less likely to achieve a secondary education than boys. (www.hrw.org)
A UNESCO study has concluded that “… if all adults received two more years of schooling or completed secondary school, it would lift nearly 60 million people out of poverty.” (https://www.unaa.org.au)
The Bandari Project aims to provide a quality education as the key to providing a brighter future for the children of Mto wa Mbu. In order to do this we need to generate funds to continue to expand our primary school and support our students to transition to secondary education.
The Bandari Project has established the Bandari Sustainability Fund under the umbrella of the Australian Communities Foundation. The fund will assist the project to achieve long term financial sustainability by generating investment income from donations and bequests to support our growing school.
The project is governed entirely by volunteers. With no administration expenses, all funds go directly to meet project expenses.
