Tanzania is a country full of potential. Its citizens enjoy political stability, a growing economy, and some of the greatest wildlife reserves on the planet. However, it is also one of the poorest countries in the world, with GDP per capita estimated as $1500 in 2011.
Only about 60% of Tanzanian youth attend primary school, the first 7 years of education. The fees associated with attending secondary school, the next 4 to 6 years, are prohibitive for all but a small portion of the population. Those fees, approximately $1100 per year, can easily exceed the yearly income of a Tanzanian family.
Tutaweza is committed to enabling Tanzanians in need of financial assistance to receive the local education they require to become the leaders of tomorrow, to the benefit of the individual and the community. Join with us in reaching that goal.
