Cheti believes the answer to ending extreme poverty lies in educating youth. We strive to open doors for students who would otherwise have no hope for education, any chance to go to college or provide for their families.
We also recognize the need to empower local heroes. Despite the corruption and lack of resources found in sub-Saharan Africa, there are individuals across East Africa fighting for the same mission — education. They have poured their hearts into running excellent private schools and have given their own time and money to help the vulnerable, orphaned children in their area. These heroes are in need of support to further enhance their successes. Each donation helps expand their mission of growing schools, orphanages and opportunities.
Our program goals are defined by three efforts; empower local heroes by providing the resources and knowledge to make a sustainable impact, engage local communities by establishing leadership positions for mothers and highlighting the importance of education, and enable children to reach their fullest academic potential through individual sponsorship.
Cheti is currently partnering with two private schools within the Arusha region that focus on academic results. We have built 8 classrooms, numerous facilities, purchased land, school buses, provided food, HIV tests, and other educational resources. Cheti has engaged the community to work with family members and stress the importance of attendance. Thus far, Cheti’s work has directly impacted approximately 1,000 individuals.
Our approach and focus on personal, trust-worthy connections, ensures that every dollar is used most effectively to create real, sustainable impact. Ester Alexander, Jue School Director, explains that through a quality education, “we are building the children in a way that prepares them mentally, physically, and spiritually to be good citizens of this country, and we hope that the kind of education we are providing them will lead them to be leaders of this country”.
