Education alone cannot overcome poverty - but it is the best way to tackle it
Tanzania has a growing demographic of vibrant, energetic children who, one day, will be the future of the country.
However, without vast improvements to educational opportunities, these young people will never learn the skills they need for the lifelong careers that could drastically improve Tanzania's economy and society.
By working together, we aim to help communities turn around their underperforming schools - giving their children the environment, resources and encouragement they need to reach their potential.
