£1,090raised of £2,000 target by 21 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,090 to help fund a floor to be laid for the School Hall at the Maranatha Secondary School, Mbeya, Tanzania.

    Mbeya, Mbeya Region, Tanzania
    Funded on Saturday, 28th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Asu and I met in 2004, when both of us were working for a homeless charity in Hove. He was working full-time whilst studying and he told me about this project he was going home to help begin. A school for the community, as there was no government school nearby for so many children, not one they could afford.

    The school has gone from strength to strength but funding for large things is not easy, as the fees students pay are so small. A proper floor on the main school hall would be amazing, many more activities could take place in the hall and it would be the hub of the school.

    Please look at the school website, the achievements are fantastic. Everyone takes pride in their school, see the school uniforms and how everyone is turned out. They are proud of their school.

    Please donate, they will be so grateful for every penny. Education is the future for every child, regardless of where they are in the world.

    Thank you for reading.
    Warm Regards

      The local community built this school. I regularly fundraise, but funding this floor would take many cake bakes and pub quizzes, so I thought I would try this new way! Please donate what you can, it will make a real difference to the school. Thank you so much, Fiona x
