Providing the opportunity for secondary education
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!
WHAT DOES A SCHOLARSHIP PROVIDE?
Our scholarship recipients receive four years of schooling and boarding at Haradali Secondary School in Arusha, Tanzania. They will receive an education that is among the best in the country, whilst living in the school's impressive boarding facilities. We provide any additional resources that may be needed for their education or boarding.
HOW ARE THE SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED?
Each year we identify a specific village or district in which to offer applications. We approach every primary school in that area and invite graduating students to apply for the scholarships. First, we look for those who have achieved the highest academic results and compile a short list of candidates. We then meet with each student and their family, giving additional weighting to applicants based on hardship or need. The final recommendations and rankings are given to the Yes Arusha board for confirmation.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Each scholarship costs $5,000 - which covers school fees, boarding fees and necessary supplies for four years.
