Mission Statement and Overview
Educate Tanzania partners with the most effective businesses, government, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) in Minnesota, Africa, the U.S. and Europe in order to bring education, water and health to remote and needy areas in the developing world.
Educate Tanzania, Inc. is a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization that forms partnerships with people to share resources and professional expertise so that people in the developing areas of the world can have access to education, clean water and good health—things that people in developed countries often take for granted. We are successful in our collaborations with local African leaders to help them provide resources that enable their schools to grow. With school growth comes clean water, increased income, and improved health. Our current partnership with the people of Northwest Tanzania in the large, remote and impoverished Karagwe District focuses on building KARUCO (Karagwe University College). This important partnership will provide a way for local Tanzanian youth to seek training, to earn a living and to contribute to their community instead of taking off for urban areas in hope of opportunity. It will also provide an alternative to early marriage (average age 18). In Minnesota, we administrate fundraising, solicit donations, and help locate architects, engineers, builders; curriculum designers, educators; and communications experts to help shape the university and tell the story of an incredible partnership that will benefit generations to come.
Educate Tanzania, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations qualify as charitable contributions and are tax deductible. For more information on who we are, please download our IRS Determination Letter.
