We did it!
Thanks to our amazing community of donors, GO Campaign raised $35,000 to bring Hotel and Restaurant Hospitality training to the Kilimahewa School in Tanzania. Not only that, but since we reached our goal before the deadline, generous donors Linda and Denny Jacobus gave a matching donation of $25,000 bringing the total raised to $60,000! By giving at-risk and impoverished youth a school for job training, we can give them the tools they need to succeed in life.
Tanzania has a booming hospitality industry due to the many tourists coming to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro or to go on safari, and this school will provide the needed skills and certificate degree to impoverished youth so they can get jobs and become self-reliant. Though one of the poorest countries in the world, it is rich in culture and human spirit and a desire for its children to have opportunities for a better life.
Thank you to everyone who has helped change the lives of these young Africans to secure a better future! By donating, any amount, no matter what size, you have made a big impact to a child’s life and the lives of their family.
