Sanawari Primary School
Most children in Tanzania stop attending school after Primary School, the US equivalent of Elementary School. Gem Legacy’s goal is for the the 1,500 students of the Sanawari Primary School, age 5-14, in Arusha, Tanzania to beat the odds and continue their education. An annual $75 scholarship is the key to kids continuing on to Secondary School, the US equivalent to Middle and High School.
The Sanawari Primary School was founded in 1942 and the 31 teachers currently employed by the school are pioneers in modernizing the Tanzanian educational system.
