Every child deserves the chance to learn....

East Meru Community School began life in 2010, in a donated, renovated cowshed, to provide a quality, English medium education for children of all abilities from some of the most disadvantaged homes in Maruvango, a remote, rural village in the Meru District of Arusha, Tanzania. It is hoped that by providing such an education we can help to change the lives of these children and their families. For more on the background, read About Us, Our School and Our History


Our donors provide the funding for our vital infrastructure - building, furnishings, solar power, equipment, vehicle etc. We welcome donations, of any size, from anyone, anywhere, and at any time!

Our sponsors provide the funds for the day to day running of the school, and we deliberately keep our rates as low as possible to allow people from all walks of life to become a part of our EMCS family.
