About Brighter Tanzania Foundation



Mission Statement

Our mission is to alleviate poverty and inequality in Tanzania through education and support of the local economy.


The function of Brighter Tanzania Foundation is to raise funds for the purpose of establishing and running schools in Tanzania. BTF's first school, Saving Grace, provides education for orphaned and impoverished students at no charge through charitable donations and student sponsorship. The goal of Saving Grace is to provide excellent educational opportunities as well as a home for the students, without placing the burden of those expenses on their families. We ensure that the school is supplied with enough money to continue making progress, not only to provide for current students, but to grow the school in an effort to educate even more deserving children.
