How do I make a donation?

If you would like to make a donation please go to our Virgin Money Giving page, our online fundraising platform for charities. Any donation, of any size, from anyone, anywhere in the world is gratefully received. If you are a UK tax payer, please don't forget to Gift Aid your donation! You can either donate to a specific appeal, or you can make a general donation which will be used for any ongoing needs - including teaching and learning resources, food and other provisions.

If you are an organisation, or foundation, or grant provider, or you have a legacy which you would like to donate to the school, please contact us and we will provide you with the details of our current appeals in line with our strategic plan.

At the start of 2021 we have two specific ongoing appeals:

USD$ 25,000

A pick up truck is essential for the day to day running of the school - it is used to transport staff and children, goods and commodities..... pretty much every day. The roads are rough and so the vehicle needs to be multi purpose and heavy duty. Unfortunately imports into Tanzania have been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and since the beginning of the appeal costs have escalated. If you would like to donate to our Vehicle Appeal please click here.

USD$ 15,000


A new library is our latest building development. It is our hope that we can continue to be a really significant community project and the library will help us to do that. It will be a place where children at the school and also children, young people and adults from the community can come and study. If you would like to donate to the Library Appeal please click here

If you are interested in holding a Fund Raising event on our behalf, please get in touch and we will provide you with all the support you will need.
