Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the option of English language instruction to the children in rural Tanzanian village of Midawe and its surroundings. We leverage volunteer and NGO resources to provide world-class academic instruction and education materials as well as career development opportunities for the teachers. Our goal is to ensure that all our students score in the top quartile of the TOEFL test at the time of graduation and our Tanzanian instructors do so within 3 years of joining the staff.

Description

Our vision is to build a small school that makes a big difference and stands on its own without depending on outside donors for day to day operations. We are growing organically and pragmatically, building a track record and using our success to attract donor funds for capital improvements.

We are taking a multi-phase approach to building and establishing this school, starting with kindergarten classes and gradually into a single-stream education program for up to 300 students. Tanzanian students are taught in Swahili and learn English as a second language. Yet, English is the language of both commerce and higher learning, limiting the prospects of government school graduates, especially those who are unable to afford remedial language instruction , which is usually needed to gain sufficient proficiency.
