David Gido, is a young teacher who decided 2 years ago to open a preschool for very low income kids, many of whom are orphans or live with single moms. He started a one room school but soon, many families began to see his school as the only viable education solution for their kids. Students as young as 3 began to walk great distances to attend David's school and he was forced to look for a second location for his school. So, David hired a couple of his teacher friends paying them from his own salary. He soon was forced to rent a larger space to create the second location and Making a Difference Foundation Tanzania (MDFT) Primary School was born.
|Making a Difference Foundation Tanzania Primary School Building (we have 3 classrooms here). This is the location of our first Flood Garden.|
THE PROBLEM: The laws of the land do not allow us to teach children older than 7 years on rented property so we are working hard to be able to buy a property were we can expand our school.
OUR NEED: Our dream is to buy one or two acres with enough space to build a larger Flood Garden for the children ages 8 to 18+!!!
