Where to start when there is so much need? Our focus was on the core necessities of the children: Food, shelter and basic education for nine orphans and basic education for the underprivileged children in the area.
Once the basics were taken care of, we decided to expand into new areas, including sustainable farming. We also decided to make a permanent mark on the community by building a beautiful Children’s Home.
Having a gorgeous Children’s Home in a poor village is a sharp contrast, so we decided to give something back to the community so everybody would feel the benefit. The women’s empowerment project and the community center provides the basics for getting the village of Nshupu involved and our Primary School becomes the centerpiece.
Precious Project started small but with a great vision. However, continuing with the old method of learning by repetition was not going to prepare the students for the realities of the new economy.
Today, after only a few years, Precious English Medium Primary School ranks as one of the most successful private primary schools in Tanzania. Our students consistently score the highest in national exams and we have become even more self-sustainable with solar and a new vegetable garden. We have added new dormitories, a music program, and a STEAM program.
