About the Tanzanian Education Foundation (TEF)


In October 2006, Nicole and Erica traveled to the village of Tengeru in Arusha, Tanzania, to volunteer as teachers in local, poverty-stricken schools. During the month that they were there, they formed a deep appreciation for the African culture, and absolutely fell in love with the children. Time after time,  they ran into cases of incredibly poor children with great attitudes towards life, and an irresistible urge to learn. It seemed that the only obstacles holding them back were a lack of money and resources.  Due to this, TEF was formed and has now expanded across the country to Portland, Oregon.

Mission Statement:

The Tanzanian Education Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Charleston, SC. We are dedicated to providing the less fortunate children of Arusha, Tanzania, with the opportunity to receive an education. We are confident that by providing education, we are also providing a means for a brighter future and the alleviation of poverty.
