Our Story

Hi! We're partnering with individuals across three continents to build a transparent and sustainable education center for the community of Nyakasangwe, Tanzania which is in dire need of better schooling facilities. It is a non-profit initiative!

Between Edward and Danny, they have over twenty years experience in volunteering and teaching. We're doing this because we wish to leave a lasting positive impact to benefit the next generation of Tanzanians.





Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the Busungu Community Center is to provide a proper education to children from 3-6 years old in the Nyakasangwe region of Tanzania. This area is underserved and lacks government funding to educate the over 400 children living in this region, with only two nursery schools currently to serve their needs. Nyakasangwe is on the outskirts of Dar Es Salaam, the commercial capital of Tanzania.


As well as providing an education, our long term objective is to create a community center in which all children in Nyakasangwe can have access to our center’s resources, including books and computers. In doing so, we can maximize their abilities and imprint long-standing positive change in this region.
