School of St Jude


School of St Jude

The School of St Jude is an English-language school that provides free education for children from the poorest families. It is located in Arusha in northern Tanzania.In 2002 Gemma Rice (now Gemma Sisia), from a sheep farm in Australia, opened a small school in northern Tanzania with the help of her family, friends and local Rotary Club. What started with only a handful of children has grown in just five years to a thriving school of 850 students. By 2015, the school plans to serve 2,000 students from kindergarten through to High School graduation. By providing an excellent education to bright children from the poorest families, the School of St Jude has the potential to influence the quality of Tanzania's future leaders.

All the children who attend The School of St Jude come from very poor families. The school provides everything they need for school from classrooms to books to uniforms and nourishing food. What makes this school even more special is the fact that this success comes about due to the group effort of thousands of ordinary people from all over the world coming together to do something quite extraordinary. Individuals, families and service clubs are joining forces by supporting the school's various sponsorship programs.

Every day staff and students work hard to fulfil the school’s philosophy of "Fighting Poverty through Education" helping students break the cycle of poverty that has gripped their families for generations.
