Olive Branch for Children brinda apoyo académico a varios estudiantes de Tanzania. La educación es fundamental para erradicar muchas de las disparidades socioeconómicas  en Tanzanía Asegurar que los jóvenes puedan acceder a la educación no solo ayuda a los más vulnerables a ganar una voz formidable dentro de sus comunidades, Tanzania y en el extranjero, sino que también cierra la brecha de ingresos entre las poblaciones rurales y urbanas.  En última instancia, el objetivo es preparar a los jóvenes a los que servimos para que tengan un empleo remunerado.  

 

TOBFC has a large group of students that are now entering high school and
post-secondary studies. In 2023-24, there were 27 post-secondary students and 15 students at the secondary level. For the 2024-25 academic year, TOBFC has

31 college and university students and 22 high school students ready to learn.

While these numbers demonstrate the success of TOBFC’s educational programs, it places more financial demands on our organization. School fees, university fees, technical college fees, school transport, uniforms, school supplies and textbooks, along with accommodation and food for students while away studying, are the biggest and most important annual expenses for TOBFC. In recent years, we have had more students entering prestigious universities and studying engineering, health sciences and other programs that have higher fees. Since the pandemic, costs have risen sharply, especially for accommodation and food, and this is also true for students attending school.

Our leading 2024 Program Sponsor, LiUNA! Local 183 has
been
supporting students at The Olive Branch for Children
for many years. One of their key educational contributions
has been providing
 Academic Support scholarships.

The total costs related to our 2024-25 Academic Support program for our college and university students will exceed $60,000. TOBFC holds a Back-To-School Campaign each September to help finance costs for accommodation, food, school supplies and other required items for our post-secondary students as well as for our high school students.

Our students are working hard, achieving success and setting themselves up for a bright future thanks to the backing of LiUNA! Local 183 and other donors.

STUDENT PROFILE: Rahim (2nd year Math and Statistics)

Rahim has benefited from LiUNA! Local 183 scholarship funding since 2018 and has reached truly incredible heights. He is currently working on a Bachelor’s Degree in Math and Statistics at the University of Dar es Salaam, where he is the top math student. In 2024, Rahim was selected to compete in a nationwide math competition for the top university-level math students – and he won! This great achievement means that next year Rahim will go to Ghana to compete on behalf of Tanzania.
