Following the successful completion of the orphanage on the outskirts of Arusha in Tanzania, Made With Hope have been hard at work building a secondary school for the children to attend as they grow older. With the nearest secondary school being 8km away and no public transport in the area, the build of this secondary school is super important for the welfare and education of these children.
Phase one of the school is complete and nearly half the school has been built. It will be made up of four separate buildings, for different subjects. They have already built the Science block and one of the classrooms, but there’s still a long way to go. Made With Hope are currently looking for grants and donations to help build the rest of the school. It will provide education to children aged 13 to 18 and will be run by Made With Hope’s partner in Arusha, Zuma, an inspirational man who has worked with different charities to help build other schools and orphanages in the local area.
Zuma knows Arusha well, so Made With Hope work closely with him to find local labourers to work on the school, in order to support the local community. Made With Hope will also only use locally made materials and products for the school, providing business to plenty of local traders and workers.
We continue to support Made With Hope by donating £1 for every item we sell and it would mean so much to them and the children if others are able to support them too. Head over to their website if you’d like to make a donation to support their influential projects:
