What is Meali?

Friends of Meali International is a small non-profit organization working to improve the educational environment for Tanzanian children.

Established in 2009, we have “adopted” 3 primary schools including our namesake Meali, increasing educational access for all, especially girls.  Our projects are suggested by the school community and we partner with the community to accomplish these projects. Your contributions allow us to fund building projects,  provide much-needed supplies, and resources and implement academic initiatives such as hiring more teachers.  We give these schools a BOOST!


You can become a part of this exciting and rewarding partnership. Donate today! ASANTE SANA, Thank you

WE BUILD classrooms, student centers, libraries, teacher housing, water cistern systems, and latrines.
WE PROVIDE additional teachers, books, desks, uniforms, solar power, form 1 preparatory classes and food for some very needy students.
WE PAY expenses for the first year of secondary school for all graduates and scholarships for the top students to go to private secondary school and beyond.


RESULTS More students, including girls, have enrolled in primary school; the community, parents, and teachers are more engaged; more students, including girls, are continuing to secondary school, and there are over 20 students in private post-primary schools, including one student in medical school.  More students can dream!​
