Currently,Kamitei Foundation reach over 3,000 children through the 10 schools that it supports and over 60 children through individual scholarships.
The focus on education is based on the following beliefs:
Field activities are based on multiple years of on-the-ground experience in rural Tanzania as to how education can be structurally improved in the most effective and efficient manner, whilst keeping overhead costs to a minimum.
Kamitei Foundation use multiple approaches to reach its aim; they build school facilities, supply desks, books and teaching aids, provide housing, training and incentives to the teachers, etc.
