AfricAid currently supports eight schools in northern Tanzania and has funded hundreds of scholarships for girls' secondary education there. Most recently, AfricAid has expanded its efforts by helping to provide funds and volunteer help for the construction of school classrooms at several locations in Tanzania, providing funding for vocational schooling, and sponsoring teacher training initiatives designed to bring more participatory learning methods to the classroom. In addition, AfricAid has provided support for the funding of a primary school water pipe project in Tanzania, school supplies for a school in Ethiopia and funding for two community school projects in Zambia.
AfricAid also believes that we in the US have an increasing responsibility to help build a culture of service learning and service activities among the youth of America. As a result, AfricAid promotes the work of the AfricAid Kids' Team and the AfricAid Clubs that have been formed in schools throughout the country, in such diverse locations as Utah, Georgia, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Colorado. Most recently AfricAid has helped develop the "Changemakers" Service Learning Curriculum project, a curriculum for elementary school teachers in the United States that can be used to help teach young children the value and satisfaction that comes from developing life-long habits of serving, giving and caring. All of these efforts are dedicated to the truth that one person or one child can make a difference in this world.
