Our Objectives, Mission, Vision and Values

OUR OBJECTIVES: To provide free, quality education opportunities that will equip underprivileged children and children from low-income families, while children from middle-income families will contribute a small amount so as to make the sustainable school dream after the support that will be provided by the donors or funders.

To empower and enhance the quality of education by offering programs that prepare students from primary education through high secondary education to university level and elevate the academic performance of both students and teachers. This will aid underprivileged children in achieving significant improvements in their lives, enabling them to contribute to the overall development of their families and the nation in general.

Message From THE FOUNDER
Following his life motto “Start Small, Start Now”, successful innovators “start small” after thinking big and acting. Start Now: Believe, act, and invest now in someone else’s life for a brighter future in the community.
Steven Saning’o began teaching English and computer skills to the underprivileged youths in a single rented room in Arusha. This was the birth moment of Kyosei.
Although I dropped out of the public educational system at a young age in Tanzania, with support from my family, I was able to successfully start over again. I continued my education at the high school level and even finished my professional studies in tourism. I knew that most of my peers did not have the same support and opportunities. My friends failed because of high tuition fees, long walking school distances, an unstable family environment, and a general lack of emphasis on education. “THIS IS WHERE THE GROWTH OF KYOSEI CAME THROUGH”, I am extremely privileged to have founded the Kyosei Foundation. Firstly, I want to thank you most sincerely for your incredible generosity in supporting KYOSEI over the past 7 years. Your support enables us to continue our invaluable work with the most vulnerable children and local community in Arusha living on low incomes, especially in the suburbs area of Terrat Ward in Arusha Region, and build sustainable futures for the entire community, including vulnerable children, by building a brighter future for them and the community in general. A world without passion and commitment is a world without a future. No matter how rich or poor we are, if we have no passion and commitment towards others, then our lives become empty, hopeless, and meaningless. To give to those in need is its own reward; “No one has ever become poor by investing in someone else’s future”.
Every vulnerable child and youth has the right to a proper foundation of education, the opportunity for a second chance, and hope for a better life. By bringing to light “THE POWER OF EDUCATION IN THE COMMUNITY,” Kyosei Foundation believes in working together towards a common good by building a brighter future together. Kyosei’s reach to date has been more than 300 local people and 150 international volunteers. We endeavor to continue our work in line with charity work, education, and community support as a sustainable weapon towards our goals. We sincerely thank and acknowledge you for your incredible generosity and ongoing support. We hope and appreciate you continuing to support our mission and vision.
In the end, I take this opportunity to welcome you all and wish you all the very best in accomplishing your dreams.
Best wishes and regards.

As the Managing Director of the Kyosei Foundation, he primarily oversees and coordinates the construction of the school.

Steven Saning’o Mollel.
