How To Start a Chapter

We would love to have you start an affiliated chapter. The more people that understand the critical needs that Project Darasani is trying address, the better the educational outcome will be for the children we are supporting.

The following are the prerequisites to start a chapter.

  • Understand the core mission of Project Darasani
  • Commitment to set up a local chapter and add at least 5 members
  • Maintain detailed records of contributions received from donors
  • Understand that the work is being performed on a voluntary basis and you can earn volunteering hours but no other compensation

Please send an email at info@project-darasani.com to get more information about starting a chapter.

School Locations

Project Darasani is focused on schools and orphanages in Arusha and nearby towns. Arusha is located in northeastern part of Tanzania at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

These are some of the 7 to 9 years old children at the Majengo school that should be in Primary School but are still in preschool because of the lack of funds.

This young girl is from the Majengo school. She's so proud to get her very first pencil.

Critical Needs

100% of your contributions go directly to children in Tanzania.

Cash Contributions

While the Primary school education is free in Tanzania, parents are required to purchase uniforms, school supplies, and pay for books.  $120 pays for a full year's school fees, uniforms, books, and supplies for one child. The school year starts in January and we urgently need cash donations to keep current students in school and to send additional kids to school. Donations welcome in any amount.

  • Purchase uniforms (shirts, skirts/trousers, socks, shoes, socks)
  • Purchase text books that are required as per the state curriculum
  • Purchase supplies in Tanzania that can't be sent from the US
  • Purchase food for orphan children under the age of 7 that start living at school age and survive on food donations

Donated School Supplies

Project Darasani is collecting new or lightly used school supplies that will be sent to a school in the slums of Majengo village and to government secondary school that has acute shortage of school materials. We urgently need the following supplies. These school supplies are very expensive in Tanzania and most families can't afford to purchase them for their children.

  • Wooden Pencils
  • Pens
  • Erasers
  • Sharpeners
  • Rulers
