SCHOOL FOR EVERYONE
Moyo Elimu is a charity organization which sets the goal to support and expand education structures in (North) Tanzania. We believe that equality in terms of education and resources is the key to a forthfilling future for everyone.
This is why we decided to establish Moyo Elimu. The Words Moyo Elimu originate from the national language of Tanzania and translates to a heart for education.
The association was founded by Laurin and Lorenz in 2022. The decisive factor for this was Laurin's 2-month stay at the Ikirwa School. He worked there as a teacher and was able to get to know the director better over time, which resulted in a friendship and valuable trust. A large part of the school kitchen could already be financed with the first call for donations.
The logical conclusion for us was the founding of the association and the associated urge to further expand the educational opportunities and to enable the children of Ikirwa School to have a better future! We now have over 60 members who accompany and support us on our journey.
OUR RECENT PROJECT
At the moment we our supporting the Ikirwa school which is located in the north of Tanzania. It was founded by Gasper Mbise and is like a second home to over 200 students. So far, the Irkiwa school has no kitchen. That is why we set the goal to build a kitchen to provide two warm meals for every student each day which is something they usually don’t get at home.
Just a few months ago where now is a big building with a roof and windows there was nothing but dry land. In July the first ovens arrived and were installed. Right now, we are focusing on a storage room for groceries.
