Our Standard 7s have been put to the test and aced it!

From more than 16,000 schools in the country, our 135 final-year primary students placed in the top 2% for national exams, and we could not be more proud.

“The results are really wonderful, with 68 students achieving A’s and 67 achieving B’s,” upper primary headmaster Peter Manjalla said.

St Jude’s provides scholarships to students from the poorest homes in Tanzania, helping families who would not be able to send their children to school.

Since opening with just three students in 2003, the school has grown to offer almost 2000 scholarships and consistently ranks as one of the top schools in Tanzania.

Our commitment to world-class teaching standards paid dividends in May when our first ever Form 6 (final year of high school) graduates finished in the top 10% in Tanzania.

These students, who come from impoverished families, will now have an opportunity to go to university and develop into future leaders in their communities.

Help St Jude’s produce future leaders in Tanzania by becoming a sponsor today.

To make sure parcels arrive and incur no expenses for the school

  • Please do NOT register or insure any mail as it costs the school at least USD $25 in taxes at our end.
  • Mark all parcels as being “second-hand goods” or “personal gifts”.
  • Ensure the description of goods written on the parcel matches the actual items inside as customs and postal staff frequently inspect contents of parcels.
  • Please label all parcels clearly with the first and last name of the recipient and your full name.
  • Please put the value of the package at no more than US$10 (the lower the better).
  • Ensure that your parcel is LESS THAN 2KG. We have been advised that parcels less than 2KG are technically tax-free regardless of content, but this is not guaranteed by all postal workers.
 

Tax-free items include books, personal goods and anything that is not new. Used goods, used clothes, etc…(please remove labels and packaging from all items before sending them)

Keep in mind that parcels sent by airmail can take up to four months to get here (sea mail is even longer – often 12+ months!), so don’t worry if it takes a while for us to let you know the parcel has arrived.
