Welcome to the Tanzanian Education Foundation(TEF)

We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit that was founded in Charleston, South Carolina, with a chapter located in Portland, Oregon. The primary goal of TEF is to make Meru View Nursery School an exemplary day school in Arusha, Tanzania. TEF wants Meru View open to all children who are interested in attending a school that will provide them with the best education, nutrition, and health programs. We plan on helping the children of Meru View continue their educational journey by providing them with scholarships.

TEF believes that there is a link between the extreme poverty and the inability to access education. Consequently, individuals find themselves limited in their capacity to engage in poverty alleviation strategies. Our mission is to remove these limitations by providing support to Meru View, giving scholarships, and working with the community with the hopes that every child who wants an education in Arusha will receive one!

Impact to Date:

  • All students at Meru View will receive HIV/ Aids test on a yearly basis.
  • Healthier porridge is served daily.
  • Vitamins supplied regularly.
  • Doctors’ visits every 3 months.
  • Currently providing the children with a daily dental program.
  • TEF supplements the teachers’ salaries at Meru View ensuring that the children receive a quality education in our English-based nursery school.
  • Provide educational field trips for the students.
  • New uniforms and supplies
  • Water filter and new kitchen provided.
  • On-going fundraising for future construction projects including a well and plumbing that will provide clean and safe running water, 2 new classrooms, and security fence.
  • Hundreds of volunteers, donors, and sponsors have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the lives of these children.
  • Schools and colleges in the United States are now dedicated to helping TEF through our School Outreach Programs.
  • TEF sponsorship for Ilkuriot Massai School in Tanzania and helped build bathrooms for the school.

We believe that people who support nonprofits and donate their time and money are not told THANK YOU enough! We are extremely grateful for all the help, time and energy people give to TEF. We could not do it without you so again we say, THANK YOU!
We especially want to thank our dear friend, Jay P. Cone. Jay was there at the beginning of TEF, and we would not be here today without his help and guidance. Jay Cone is an avid philanthropist in Tanzania. He has traveled to Tanzania and fell in love with the people and their culture. He supports numerous causes in Tanzania including forest conservation and education.  From all of us at TEF, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
