Angaza Christian Schools

After watching children on the streets in a village of USA river, Tanzania. St. John's heard a call to serve. God laid it on our hearts to fight poverty through education...and Angaza Christian schools was born.
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.”

Angaza Christian Schools has over 450 students ranging from pre-school to 7th grade. The students are taught english to give them the opportunity to continue their education in Tanzania's secondary schools which are only taught in english. These children now have access to food, uniforms, and clean water.
The guiding principle in Africa is that education is the key to lifting people out of poverty. Students have access to a brighter future for them, their families, and their communities.
Sponsorships cover 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.
