WHAT WE DO
Yes Arusha supports over 60 students with sponsorships and scholarships for primary and secondary schooling in Arusha, Tanzania.
The children who have been identified for sponsorship were selected due to their desperate need for care and education. Our students each have a unique background and story behind them, but they all share a common need for education. We are supporting a number of orphaned students who all receive additional support.
Yes Arusha began as a sponsorship organisation, supporting children by linking them with a individual (or group) sponsor. We have recently shifted our focus towards our scholarships, but we have around 50 students continuing in our original sponsorship program. Much is owed to our dedicated sponsors who are seeing these students through their educational journey.
SECONDARY SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS
Each year we provide merit-based scholarships to some remarkable students in Tanzania. A scholarship provides the recipient with funding for four years of secondary schooling with boarding included. This program is conducted in partnership with Haradali Secondary School, which is widely known to be among the best schools in the country. Since 2017 we have awarded nine full scholarships thanks to the support of many generous donors!
Established in 2016, the Safe House is a home for disadvantaged children at Haradali Primary School. The house was developed as a way of ensuring that each of our sponsored students could access their education while living in a safe environment. Today more than 20 children call the Safe House their home.
