About Us

AFFORDABLE
The average family income in rural Tanzania is roughly US $200 per year, while average secondary school and boarding school fees are $500. Over 90% of families cannot afford boarding schools, but they can pay $20 per year to send their child to an affordable school like Mungere Secondary.

ACCESSIBLE
Tanzania is suffering from a shortage of teachers and schools, and children living in rural areas must travel long distances or attend expensive boarding schools. Red Sweater Project operates schools within villages, providing education and health services within the community.

ADVANCED
Education is about more than test scores – it's about critical thinking, innovation and solutions. By creating educational institutions that utilize renewable energy to power computers and provide access the internet, we equip each child with skills that lead to success in a 21st century world. Courses in business development encourage entrepreneurship and innovation, while vocational courses develop real-life skills that lead to employment and self-sufficiency.
