Come and visit The School of St Jude, one of the largest and most successful charity-funded schools in East Africa. Founded in 2002 with only 3 students, the school now provides a free, high-quality education to 1,800 students, boarding to 1,400 students, and employs more than 250 Tanzanian staff. Students are selected based on their academic potential and genuine financial need, meaning they are among the brightest and most poverty-affected children in and around the Arusha region. Each year, over 1,000 visitors come and see firsthand the impact people from around the world have made through a school that’s changing the lives of its students, staff, and their families. The visitors' team can assist you with your own personal itinerary and ensure you get the most out of your visit, providing you with a real insight into Tanzanian life. They can organize a wide range of activities in and around the school as well as cultural tours and comfortable accommodations for overnight guests.
