EfforTZ is a small but energetic 501(c)(3) nonprofit run entirely by dedicated volunteers who have spent years in the business, non-profit and education fields.

Our mission is to provide a quality education to orphanage boys, Maasai girls and impoverished children in Tanzania so that they may reach their full potential as adults and contribute to the betterment of their communities and their country. 

We strive to advance the educational opportunities of these children by:

  • Providing scholarships to attend primary, pre-secondary, and secondary schools as well as vocational schools and institutions of higher learning 
  • Improving the learning environment in schools by providing books, school supplies, and English language enrichment activities
