We have built an education system that typically ranks in the top 10% nationally.

Who are we?

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.

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.

We rely on the generosity of supporters to raise AU$8million annually.

How can you help?

St Jude’s is a registered charity and non-governmental organisation (NGO). Thanks to our generous community of supporters, we are able to provide education to thousands of primary, secondary and higher education students.

If you’d like to join our community of supporters and help us continue providing free, quality education to the future leaders of Tanzania, you can sponsor an academic scholarship, make a once-off or recurring donation  or spread the word about St Jude’s.
