Books For Tanga Region II (Louis Brownstone) - Tanzania

Project Goal: $30,000

Current Progress: $27,818 (93.00%)

Update: fundraising for our first container has been completed, and the books have arrived in Tanzania (pictured below)!  We are excited to begin fundraising for a second full container of books to Tanga!

The “Books for Tanga Region, Tanzania” project will supply text books and library books to primary and secondary schools located throughout the Tanga Region of Tanzania. Schools deal with an extreme shortage of books, often with a single book per classroom of 60 students and empty libraries. The goal of the project is to provide students with tools necessary to be successful in life.

Some facts about Tanzania:

  • Population below international poverty line of US$1.25 per day (2011): 68%

  • GDP per Capita (2013): $694 USD (compared to $53,000 for the USA)
  • Life Expectancy (2012): 61 years
