Your financial and prayerful support of education for the students of Mlowa continues to amaze us! God is working through your gifts and changing the lives of students and families living in Tanzania.

We reported last year that the government of Tanzania has opened a secondary school in Mlowa. Having a local school provides our partner families the choice to educate their children in a local secondary public school and to have their children live at home for their entire high school education. What a gift it is to have a choice of where and how your children should be educated.

Even with this new local school option, there is still great need for our educational dollars. The educational system of Tanzania and the Iringa diocese still need your support. Your donations will be used where the need is greatest:

  • Scholarship Equity Fund supports students from non-partnered congregations in the Iringa diocese. Not every community in the Iringa diocese is fortunate enough to have a government school in their neighborhood or a St. Paul Area Lutheran Church as a partner. A year of education costs a family $400.
  • Infrastructure Fund supports educational building projects like the science labs at secondary schools. Any amount can help build the infrastructure needed to educate kids in the Iringa Diocese.
  • Teacher Training Fund supports the professional development of educators at diocese’s secondary schools. Teachers need education too.
  • Boarding School Scholarships allow families the option of having their children educated in an Iringa Diocese school outside of Mlowa.
