The Foundation For Tomorrow (TFFT) is a non-profit organization based in Arusha, Tanzania, that addresses vulnerability through the power of education. TFFT’s mission is to secure quality education and emotional support for orphan and vulnerable children so that they may reach their full potential and thrive in their communities.
Working in Tanzania since 2007, with an African team driving African solutions, TFFT has supported over 140 children with educational scholarships and trained over 2,318 teachers, impacting approximately 164,172 students in classrooms across Tanzania.
In October of 2021, TFFT broke ground on an exciting new project, The Learning Centre. It will encompass six areas of learning: a free lending Library; a Teacher Training Facility and Literacy Lab; a Higher Education Advisory and Scholarship Centre; an NGO and Social Entrepreneurship Incubator; and a Technology and Computer Training Centre. The Learning Centre will expand and deepen TFFT’s commitment to the community and bring transformative services that will enrich the lives of people young and old through its establishment.
By providing access to learning, a child is provided with the opportunity to create a life of self-sustainability. Change agents will spend time with others who want to make a difference in an environment that nurtures thinking, creativity, and reflection.
TFFT intends for the Centre to host 21,285 individuals in its first year. Water will be a critical resource at the Centre, and will not only make it possible for The Learning Centre to operate, but will serve all those The Learning Centre touches. For The Learning Centre to be fully functional, they will need running water for toilets, sinks, the kitchen, for cleaning purposes, and water fountains. The Learning Centre will provide clean water and sanitation to those who use the Centre from across the region for generations to come. We hope through running the Kilimanjaro Half Marathon we can shed light on this issue and inspire others to be a part of TFFT’s Learning Centre initiative. Our goal as a team is to raise the funds necessary to provide a 160-meter borehole for clean running water.
