Ushirika Association 

A bit of background

In the Ushirika Association, we are driven by a single goal: to do our part in making the world a better place for all.

The association started with a small group of people with an interest for education. The need for education is great in Tanzania but economic resources and other possibilities are scarce. The group has therefore sponsored the education of Montessori kindergarten teachers during several years. All collected money goes to the scholarships.
