Nianjema offers need-based scholarships to Secondary and High School students. In Tanzania, families make great sacrifices for their children to attend. In some cases, school fees are paid by the extended family or village, with the understanding that the student is their hope for the future.
Our annual scholarship goal is $8,400, which will provide full scholarships for students at each of the six class levels.
We need your help to achieve this goal. Over the past 9 years, Nianjema has given 43 need-based scholarships and 68 partial motivational, merit-based scholarships.
Scholarships for Girls
Nianjema recognizes that for Tanzania to flourish, all children must have equal access to quality education. Traditionally, boys attend school beyond elementary school at a higher rate than girls and families are more likely to sacrifice to educate boys. Scholarship funds can help Nianjema educate more girls. Nianjema receives scholarship support from for girls from Aid for African and Africa Childrens Haven. We welcome individual as well as organizational support.
Continued Education Scholarships
Nianjema is proud that we successfully prepare students to go on to higher education. Many, however, require additional financial resources to take that important next step.
Tanzania Education Fund supported Anthony Nyenshile, a superb history teacher at Nianjema, in his pursuit of an advanced degree. After three years away from Nianjema, Mr. Nyenshile is now Nianjema’s headmaster.
Nianjema Secondary and High School and its supporting fund, TheTanzania Education Fund, has the new goal of identifying donors to support other students who have been accepted at accredited colleges and are in need of scholarship support. Need ranges from $500 to $1400 annually, per student, depending on the higher education institution and degree sought.
