We believe every child deserves the chance for a brighter future by receiving a proper education foundation. You can transform the lives of these children by sponsoring one or multiples, and providing them with an excellent education. Through our educational and child sponsorship program, you can make a big impact on our local community. Sending the child to school poses a challenge to many families due to the consequent extra costs, e.g. school fees. Poverty is one of the major problems in the rural areas of Tanzania. With the help of sponsors, who take over these fees, more and more students will be able to attend Kyosei school.

We are incredibly grateful for your help. If you are able, please sponsor a child at Kyosei Foundation. Invest in their future and help them towards life that they otherwise would only dream of.

Situation of children in Tanzania

In Tanzania, an estimated 1,300,000 children are orphans due to HIV and other diseases. Growing up without a family or in a dysfunctional family environment has serious implications on a child’s mental and physical development. The combined gross school enrollment ratio in Tanzania is now 57.3 %. However, government funding of primary and secondary education is very low.

Reasons given by schools for dropping out of school:

  1. Child labour is a very complex problem: Child labour steals the youth of children and their right to an education. It is damaging for their mental and physical health, The main reasons as to why child labour exists are poverty and illiteracy or lack of knowledge, lack of education, with good reason that most of Masai community force their children to keep goats and cows instead of giving children a chance for education.
  2. Poverty: Poverty is a major cause of drop outs due to school expenses like school fees, uniforms and others.
  3. Distance: Pre and Grade 1 school going age are still at home because they are not able to walk long distances to and from school. In some districts school children were expected to cover more than six kilometres per day.
  4. Confusion of fee free basic education policy: The elimination of school fees also leads to an increase in the student population over 100 students in a room with one teacher, and even with the the addition of new schools, class sizes are enormously overcrowded. In some households, poor families and vulnerable children were not able to attend school due to lack of school requirements such as uniforms, school supplies and meals.
  5. Pregnancy and Forced Marriage: In Tanzania at least 8, 000 girls dropped out due to pregnancy, It feels like girls dreams are shattered down. She’d be forbidden from returning to school, Last year Tanzania’s president John Pombe Magufuli declared support for a ban on expectant mothers from public schools ”No pregnant girl will go back to school ”He claims this directive will curb teen pregnancy. But in a county where a quarter of girls give birth before 20, the policy denies education to thousands, Tanzania is one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates on earth.
  6. Deaths: Death of children parents is also a cause of drop out of children from school as no longer parental for a child.
  7. Parental restrictions: In all districts covered by the verification study it is found that parents restricted their children from attending school in order for them to undertake domestic chores.
  8. Truancy tendencies: Truancy is also identified as a major reason causing drop out of children.
  9. Bad youth groups: Peer groups which lacked role models for the importance of the power of education, attracted some of the truant children to join them.

Indeed, school enrolment is the key to a stable adult life and job opportunities. That’s why these children need a sponsor more than anything, to enable them to have a proper education and set the stone for a brighter future.

Types of sponsorship

Although the main focus are the basic needs of vulnerable children, Kyosei Foundation has many projects running simultaneously. Here’s how you can help other than sponsor a child:

Sponsor a teacher

In Tanzania, it is common for classes to consists of 70+ students. This inevitably leads to poor performance; teacher can not provide appropriate guiding to all. However, there are no funds to pay for more teachers’ salaries. Kyosei Foundation is making a major difference in this aspect. The classes are supposed to not hold more then 32 students to ensure high-quality learning. Additionally, research has shown that children perform better in smaller class sizes, with the teacher being able to provide attention to where it’s needed most. By contributing 65 $ per month towards the salary of a teacher, you allow us to hire more staff. With more personnel, students can perform their best under improved conditions.

Sponsor a meal

Without good nutrition children cannot perform at their best. They can not concentrate, learn and develop their talents properly. Therefore, Kyosei Foundation wishes to provide basic meals of rice and beans, fruits and clean water for drinking to its students. Currently, the children are only served a cup of porridge each as breakfast in the morning. In reality, it is a huge financial burden to feed every child. By sponsoring meals, you can ensure the children receive quality education with a more balanced and nutritious diet throughout the year.

Sponsor a classroom

Kyosei Foundation is currently building a school in a rural area outside of Arusha, Tanzania. Although in the recent years, the organization was able to start initial construction work with the help of past generous donations, more funds are massively and urgently needed to finish building the school. There are certain governmental requirements to be met and for that, the is further construction work planned. See on this page for more information on current and future expansions plans of Kyosei Foundation: Help build a school. We kindly ask you to participate and help fundraising in order to reach our goals. Underprivileged, vulnerable children, orphans and low income families – the local community in general – are waiting for their school to be ready. Let’s make this happen together!
