Achieve in Africa Announces Next Project

Achieve in Africa is pleased to announce that our next project will be constructing the first secondary school in Olasiti village in northern Tanzania. In 2010, we completed construction on two new classrooms for the overcrowded Olasiti Primary School. Olasiti Village's most immediate need is now a secondary school.


We plan to build Olasiti Secondary School in stages, one dual classroom building at a time. The cost of a classroom is $5,000 USD. After construction, we will also provide desks and other necessary supplies. For more information about Operation Olasiti or how to help, please click here

Community Learning Center Update

We are also happy to announce that we have completed construction of the Community Learning Center in the village of Ulolela in southern Tanzania!


Students are currently using the CLC for after-school studying, and we are working with our team of volunteers to implement the curricula for HIV/AIDS awareness, business fundamentals, agriculture and self-empowerment training. We will also outfit the CLC with solar panels in the upcoming months.

AIA Ambassador Program Launched

The AIA Ambassador Program provides resources for students who are interested in gaining leadership experience by organizing fundraisers that will support education in Africa. When students express interest in becoming an AIA Ambassador, they receive a packet, including:
  • Welcome letter
  • Sample flier and brochure
  • Ideas for fundraisers
  • Tips for promoting their fundraisers

This toolkit makes it easier for middle school, high school and college students to successfully fundraise for Achieve in Africa by getting insight into what has worked well in the past.

 

We’re currently promoting the AIA Ambassador Program to numerous school groups. Please feel free to promote this program to schools or individuals who might be interested. For more information on the program or if you would like to get directly involved, please contact fundraise@achieveinafrica.org.
