We envision a world in which every Tanzanian child is provided a chance to receive quality education that recognizes and fosters individual talent, and every Tanzanian woman an opportunity for professional advancement and personal empowerment.


Our mission is twofold.  Founded on the notion that each child is an individual with diverse aptitudes and learning styles to be encouraged, we help public primary school students in Tanzania to develop strengths, overcome challenges, and cultivate creativity.  We hire and train underemployed local women as tutors, and work with the Ministry of Education, parents and caregivers, and the community at large.  The goal of The Toa Nafasi Project is to enrich the classroom experience, create a linkage between school and home, and offer a chance to succeed for both student and tutor.
