Past Projects in Africa
TANZANIA SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY PROJECT
This project enhanced access to education for disadvantaged children in rural Tanzania through construction and income-generation initiatives.
Quest first began working in Tanzania in 2002, with the Village Education Project in Kilimanjaro. Thereafter, continued this support through the Nkoaranga schools and Livingstone Tanzania Trust until 2013. Through financial and volunteer support, Quest improved educational facilities of four different schools, through the construction and renovation of classrooms, store rooms, water tanks and toilets, giving students enhanced opportunities to education. The setting up of sustainable school farms improved income for these schools and families of children, while the construction of a community library, health centre and recreational facilities benefitted the local children.
