St Jude’s has a new look

You may have noticed we look a little different.
You may have noticed we look a little different

We’re still the same School of St Jude, with the same people providing the same high quality education to approximately 1,800 primary and secondary students in Tanzania.

So why the change? As you probably know, the school itself has grown substantially in its first 14 years. We wanted a new look and feel that reflects where we are now. And we wanted it to show the energy, the trust, the welcoming spirit and the professionalism we’re known for.

This will help us attract more international philanthropy, but at its heart, our new look is really about being proud of who we are and what we’re achieving for the community. Now and into the future.We have been so lucky to have two wonderful partners who are helping us achieve this new look, graphic design and branding geniuses Seesaw and web development gurus eFront. Both of these amazing companies have partnered with St Jude’s to help us achieve our new look on a pro-bono basis and for this we wanted to thank them. 

The first part of this process is the launch of our new logo and an update of our website’s landing page. Over the coming months and into the new year you will see more changes as we introduce the rest of our new look. We hope you are as excited about this next step as we are!

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.
