Help transform the lives of the most vulnerable in Tanzania

Dreams are universal. Opportunity is not.

When a child does not want to finish his or her food, a parent often says something along the lines of “finish your food; there are starving children in Africa.” This statement and others like it represent the mentality some families grow up with. We know that much of Africa is impoverished, which leads to malnourishment in children, death from curable diseases, homelessness, and much more. If we know all this, then why not help?

Precious Project strongly believes in the power of education to transform lives. You can help the children and families in Tanzania break the cycle of poverty and give them an opportunity for a better future. Without a good education, Nshupu's children are destined to grow up to repeat their parents' livelihood or go to a city where they would be laborers struggling to afford any quality of life.

Our vision is to eradicate poverty and illiteracy in the Tanzanian village of Nshupu. We nurture, educate, and empower its youth so they can become future leaders and productive members of their nation.

ABOUT THE TANZANIAN VILLAGE OF NSHUPU

Nshupu is a remote village located on the side of Mt. Meru in Tanzania Africa. Well off the beaten path of tourists who climb nearby Mount Kilimanjaro or venture on a safari is the small Tanzanian village of Nshupu. Lying at an altitude of around 4,500 feet on the southern slope of Mount Meru, Nshupu is the home of subsistence farmers who grow maize and bananas, many living below the poverty line of $1.50/day. Almost four out of every 10 children under five years are chronically undernourished. Those families who can afford local government school fees often cannot continue to support their children's education beyond primary school.
