WELCOME TO KYOSEI FOUNDATION
Charity | Education | Community Support.
KYOSEI MEANS "THE SPIRIT OF WORKING TOGETHER TOWARDS A COMMON GOAL."
The Kyosei Foundation is a small, transparent charitable non-profit organization based on education established in 2015 with aid programs that provide quality education opportunities and community support projects. We seek to raise funds and donations to support educational projects and programs for vulnerable children and people of low socioeconomic status living in Arusha.
We are a fully volunteer-run charitable organization. All contributions go directly to projects, programs, and low operating costs.
We're an officially registered charity with Registration No. 00NGO/08612 located in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa.
100% of donations go directly to our school projects and programs. Only a small portion of application fees and voluntary contributions cover basic operating costs. Because even a non-profit organization in Tanzania is recognized by the tax office, it has to pay money for permits, registration, and certain services. These types of costs include, for example, bank account management fees, salaries, bills, international money transfer fees, or general office supplies.

SPONSOR A CHILD
Every year, 32 vulnerable children get a free quality education. Help invest in a future for 640 dollars per month.
The lack of education opportunities is a leading cause of poverty in Tanzania; schools are not free. Attendance at both public and private primary schools requires the ability to pay for school fees, uniforms, meals, books, school supplies, transportation, and other expenses. With approximately 40% of Tanzanians living on less than €0.8 per day (up to 87% in rural areas), there are families unable to cover these costs, and thus their children can’t attend school. For the public schools, there is the added challenge of providing quality education due to very large class sizes, a lack of classrooms, and rudimentary teaching and learning methods, among other factors. and Often, the next school is 2–7 km/h away from their home by foot, and families cannot afford transportation. Hence, children stay at home and do not receive a school education.
Help donate or raise funds for our school's construction materials and teaching and learning materials.
Even €1 can make a great impact on vulnerable children's lives in Arusha!
WE ARE A TRANSPARENT NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION BASED ON EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. AT THIS MOMENT, YOU CAN HELP US COMPLETE OUR SCHOOL PROJECT TO BUILD A PRE & PRIMARY SCHOOL AND FOUNDATION FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN IN ARUSHA FROM THE AGE OF 3 TO 15 YEARS OLD.

We are committed to and shall continue helping the following target groups:
We spent six weeks volunteering at Kyosei, and what a humbling and rewarding experience it was. We arrived with funds raised for the school after climbing Kilimanjaro and were ready to get involved with the practical side of helping to build the new classrooms at the new site. Steven was both surprised and so thankful for what he didn’t expect from us—the money or that we were ready ‘to get our hands dirty’.
I thank the Kyosei Foundation for taking me to their family and showing me the real life of this beautiful continent. I worked as a teacher of English and literature with older students who were motivated to learn and gain new knowledge. Together, we read and analyzed African literature and various topics in business English. It was an amazing time that allowed me to feel my need; I saw the result of my contribution to someone’s life.
I am now back for my second time at the Kyosei Foundation. I don’t even know where to begin in describing my feelings regarding Kyosei and Tanzania. The warmth you meet, the smiling faces It just fills my heart with joy. The first time I volunteered, I didn’t know what to expect. We went there with open hearts and minds. From day one, Mr. Steven, his wonderful wife, and all the students made us feel welcome and safe.
Volunteering here in Kyosei was an experience we will never forget. We stayed with Steven and his family for two months. The living situation is truly an authentic experience. Be prepared to live like a true Tanzanian. It took us some time to adjust, but we are stronger for it. The people of Arusha have an “Hakuna Matata” attitude; life is at this pace, and things happen according to this mindset. You’ll need to be open and flexible, but you will be thankful in the end. We did many things while volunteering, and Steven and his team are open to using the skills you have. We taught, helped build the new school, did web development, and ran a fundraiser. The classes range from preschool all the way to adult classes with vocational training. Their mission is powerful, and the organization is doing so much to help the children and youth of the future. It was very rewarding to contribute to this mission. You can also go on a multiple-day safari. This is an experience we will always remember and hold close to our hearts. We have our Tanzanian family now! We got pushed out of our comfort zone and grew in many ways. The way we view the world is extremely different. We wish them all the best, and we know they will continue doing amazing things for their community. Thank you for everything!
Volunteering here was a fantastic, eye-opening experience. The foundation is serving a valuable role in Arusha by helping children further their education in many ways. There was lots going on during the two weeks I spent volunteering. First, there were six other volunteers from various countries, which made it enjoyable to work together and support each other. During my time in October and November, many students were attending catch-up classes to prepare for the start of secondary school in the new year. A couple volunteers spent the majority of their time working on English, math, and science lessons with these kids. Other volunteers helped with the “adult” classes, which could include some teenage students who are working to get themselves back into the government schools or further their vocational training with job-related skills. Other volunteers were helping with construction at the new school site. I mostly helped with digital content, including photos and videos, and helped create a volunteer handbook. There are lots of ways to help, and Steven and his team are happy to get you involved in any way you feel comfortable.
