The School of St Jude is a pioneering leader in charitable education within Africa. Our Founder, Gemma Sisia
, opened the school in 2002 with a big dream to bring the opportunity of free, quality education to children living in poverty. This remains our mission today.
We provide free education to 1,800 bright, poor primary and secondary students, we support 100s of graduates with access to higher education and provide more than 20,000 government school students with volunteer teachers each year. 97% of St Jude’s secondary graduates go on to access higher education, supported by Beyond St Jude’s
or by other means. Located across three campuses, we provide boarding for all secondary students and employ around 300 Tanzanian staff.
St Jude’s promotes a holistic, well-rounded education so our students can do more than just succeed; we empower them to challenge the status quo, find solutions to assist the 45 million Tanzanians living in poverty and become the future leaders their country needs.
