Peace House Foundation
Dedicated to educating Africa’s orphans
Peace House Academy
The lack of quality education in Tanzania is recognized as one of the nation’s most pressing concerns. Public schools in Tanzania are understaffed, underfunded and not available to every child. In addition, all schools charge fees so for many children, attendance is not an option due to limited funds at home.
Children who have been orphaned by the AIDS pandemic have even less of a chance of attending school. To help combat this problem, we are planning to build Peace House Academy – a secondary boarding school which will, when operating at capacity, provide an education and a home to 640 Tanzanian teens.
In addition to the traditional Tanzanian curriculum, Peace House Academy will offer classes and trainging in business, entrepreneurship, and other areas designed to help graduates create jobs for themselves and others.
construction graphicBuilding the school requires help from many people. If you are interested in helping, consider launching a “Construction Campaign” within your church, workplace, or among your friends and family. This means raising the funds necessary for one room of the school (or more if you’d like). Rooms needed range from a laundry area for $1500, a dorm room for 4 students for $2200, a classroom for $10,000, all the way to a fully-outfitted industrial kitchen for $75,000. If this type of appeal interests you, contact [email protected] and ask for a Construction Campaign Kit.
