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.

I served as their Development Director for over a year and it was a great opportunity to expand my skills & get practical experience. It also looks nice on my resume! :) It's a small organization where your time can really make a difference. I'm still on their board as a volunteer. :)

I have been volunteering with Brighter Tanzania Foundation since it was formed in 2014. BTF is completely volunteer-run, and we're all here because we want to make a difference in the lives of children. I have really enjoyed watching this organization grow (and helping!) over the past few years.
