Our Education and Training project has two components
1. Formal Education Support
Orphans Foundation Funds have been irking with donors to support orphans and less prosperous children to attend Secondary Schools, Colleges and Universities in Tanzania.
So far ten students are being fully supported in terms of tuition fees, accommodation and meals, stationeries, books and computers, transport, medical allowances.
In 2013 this programme graduated a student in Tax Administration at advanced diploma level. In 2014, one student has completed high school taking Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Three University graduates this year will be in Accounts and Finance, Journalism and Mass Communication. Continuing students are taking engineering, accounts, procurement and business studies at various universities and colleges in Tanzania. Dr. James Lace continue to provide funds for these students. More donors are welcome to sponsor individual students as the demand for support is still high. Of lately we have been receiving requests to support vulnerable children to access secondary education.
