Help support the children of Rau Village (Moshi, Tanzania, East Africa) with basic educational supplies and nutritious lunches in 2013.
Rau Children's Center (formerly known as Watoto Rau Nursery School) was initiated in July 2007, through the combined efforts of international volunteers, local Tanzanian volunteers and the Rau community itself. It's aim is to teach the children of Rau their basic preschool knowledge, such as the ABCs, numbers 1-10, colors, shapes, and English (body parts, greetings, and other vocabulary words). Those who attend Rau Children's Center are the underprivileged children of Rau Village (in Moshi, Tanzania) whose families cannot afford to send them to formal, or government, schooling. Therefore, the center was established as a ‘fee free’ center of learning for children who would otherwise not receive an education in Tanzania.
Project MEMA (a Boston-based 501(c)(3) registered public charity) began supporting Rau Children's Center in 2011. In 2012 Project MEMA renovated the center and it's grounds by building new student desks, a teacher's desk and storage cabinet, an outdoor sanitary latrine, a reclaimed tire play area, and by commissioning murals for the exterior and interior of the center.
Project MEMA continues to provide 20 students with nutritious porridge 5 days a week, uniforms, school supplies, and a fee free preschool education.
The goal of this fundraiser is to continue Project MEMA's work and belief that the children of Rau have the right to a free education. This Holiday Season please consider supporting the bright students at Rau Children's Center.
