Empower the Future: Join Precious Project in Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Tanzania

Dreams are universal. Opportunity is not.

When a child refuses to finish their meal, the familiar refrain often echoes: "Finish your food; there are starving children in Africa." Such statements encapsulate a mindset that some families grow up with. We are aware of the widespread poverty in Africa, leading to malnourishment, preventable diseases, homelessness, and more. The question arises: if we know this, why not help?

At Precious Project, we firmly believe in the transformative power of education. You have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and families in Tanzania, breaking the cycle of poverty and offering them a chance for a brighter future. Without access to quality education, the children of Nshupu are at risk of perpetuating their parents' struggles or becoming laborers in a city, facing challenges to maintain a decent quality of life.

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

About the Tanzanian Village of Nshupu: Nshupu, situated on the side of Mt. Meru in Tanzania, remains hidden from the typical tourist paths of Mount Kilimanjaro climbers and safari enthusiasts. This remote village, lying at an altitude of approximately 4,500 feet, is home to subsistence farmers living below the poverty line of $1.50/day. Nearly four out of every ten children under five years old are chronically undernourished. Families that can afford local government school fees often struggle to support their children's education beyond primary school.
