Food costs double - May '22
We have recently received an urgent request for funds from the school's director. Worldwide food costs are soaring, as we all know, but in the world's poorest countries, there is the real possibility of people starving to death. The mid-day meal is crucial for the children.
Therefore, with help from our sister organisation, Fundraising Tanzania, we have helped provide the school with 3 month's food in store to ensure the children are fed and can learn on a full stomach. The food costs have increased by 50% from those listed here and are likely to rise further.
If you can help us with these vital costs for future need, please click on the donate button at the top of the page.
Help us raise funds to buy a mini-bus similar to this. We have a target of £6000 and are already half way there!
This is needed to ensure that the children can continue to attend school when the rains come and they cannot travel to school by their usual means - on foot.
There is a real danger of children dropping out if they cannot get to school.

Since we launched our appeal and posted the original picture, at the end of March 2020, we have been able to send £950 DIRECTLY to the school. This was from donations and profits from the first 2 months of our new 200 Club. HUGE thanks to everyone who has, and continues to, support our work and make a difference, especially during this very difficult time for us all. We would particularly like to thank the international benefactors who provided additional financial help for the school and families.
The school made 500 face masks, with material we purchased, which were distributed to the children and their families. We provided food to sustain 38 families for 2 weeks, soap and hand-washing buckets.
The beneficiaries were extremely grateful and asked for God's blessings on those who provided the vital help.
UPDATE JULY 2021
Covid is becoming more prevalent again. The new President has a different outlook to Covid from her predecessor and there are now stringent rules in place with regards to mask wearing and social distancing. We are very pleased with this news. Thankfully no-one connected with Ekica school has been affected.
