Tanzania

St. John's is proud to operate an early childhood through seventh grade private Christian school in Tanzania. Each year members of the St. John's community partner with this school and fund a child's education, from lunches to tuition and everything in between. As the school expands, the community benefits more and more from a quality Christian education taught in English.

The guiding principle in Africa is that education is the key to lifting people out of poverty. We are blessed to be a part of this solution. 
Students who attend our school, Angaza Lutheran School, range in age from 3 years through 13 years old. This year the grade levels are Preschool for 3’s and 4’s, and Kindergarten through 7th grade. There are a total of approximately 400 students at the school.

This year’s sponsorship amounts are $200/year for the preschool and Kindergarten children and $500/year for elementary age. This amount covers tuition, food, uniform and transportation if needed. For many students, the meal at school is the main meal for the day. We prefer sponsors who will prayerfully consider making a commitment to the child they sponsor through their graduation, but we understand plans occasionally change. School year starts in January, so payments for the upcoming year are due no later than October 31, so we can wire the sponsorship money to Tanzania in December.
 
The word “Angaza” in Swahili means “shine,” and comes from Isaiah 60:1: “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.”
Sponsorships for the 2020-21 school year are now available. Please contact Patrice Appold using the link below to inquire about sponsoring a child's education in Tanzania.
