We are a dedicated UK charity that empowers children in rural Tanzania to access quality education, breaking the cycle of poverty.

 
 

What We Do

We work in very rural communities in Arusha, Tanzania where there is no electricity, no clean drinking water, no public transport and most households are living in extreme poverty. We partner with schools in these communities and support them in four essential programme areas.

 
 
Let Us Learn: School Infrastructure   Classrooms are essential for any school. In Tanzania the recommended classroom size is 45 students, but many schools have classes of 100-140 students.

Water is Life: Clean Water   In rural Arusha there is no access to fresh drinking water meaning students are thirsty, miss classes to collect water for their school or are left to consume unsafe water.

Being Well: Health & sanitation   A huge reason for missing school is due to sickness from poor sanitation facilities and lack of education.

Lighten Up: Clean light energy   Most students at our schools live in mud huts with no electricity. This can stop students from completing homework, stunting their learning.

Why do we work in Tanzania?

  • Tanzania is the 34th poorest country in the world

  • We have visited class sizes of 144 in one standard classroom because there is such high demand, which makes education quality low

  • Girls are often stigmatised during menstruation and do not attend school

  • 5 students often have to share 1 textbook

  • If a child doesn’t pass their exams at the end of Primary School first time, they will not be able to attend Secondary School

What is unique about us?

  • We are small and personable

  • We believe in transparency so much that we publish our mistakes online

  • We focus on quality of education as opposed to quantity

  • We listen to the community & find solutions together

  • We partner with a Tanzanian NGO to deliver the projects & we remain behind the scenes

  • We are led by volunteers with a variety of diverse skills

Our Tanzanian delivery partner

We work with local communities and organisations in Arusha to tackle barriers to education together. We collaborate with CHETI NGO, a registered Tanzanian charity to aid us in delivering the work needed on the ground.

Together, since 2013, we have improved the lives of hundreds of disadvantaged students through our various education and health projects.

Having a trusted partner in the local area helps us guarantee that the donations we receive will always make it to our projects!

How we started

Made With Hope began when our founder, Eleanor, dreamed of making the world a better place. In 2013, Eleanor visited Tanzania and saw the need to empower communities to provide vital education, water and sanitation projects for the amazing, yet disadvantaged, children in their community.
