The Foundation For Tomorrow (TFFT) – Arusha Office
TFFT is a high-energy and fast-growing international nonprofit that focuses on addressing vulnerability through education. We offer individual orphan and vulnerable children the opportunity to succeed through access to quality schooling, health and psychosocial support and life skills programs. Additionally, we work to improve the quality of instruction and school management to ensure widespread, sustainable impact through training excellent educators. TFFT believes systemic change happens from the community level, and are excited to play a role in transforming the education landscape in Tanzania.
TFFT believes in the power of education and that geography should not dictate an individual’s potential.
TFFT’s strategy for change is multi-lateral, longitudinal, and individualized. Through its Scholarship Program, TFFT equips marginalized children in Tanzania with the education and skills required to reach their potential and have a positive impact on society. We help our scholars become their personal best. While TFFT prioritizes the daily needs of its scholars, TFFT simultaneously works with educators to transform Tanzania’s education landscape. TFFT’s Teacher Training Program improves the quality of instruction in primary and secondary schools, while also improving their resources. We ensure that schools are child-friendly, nonstigmatizing, gender sensitive, and supportive of the needs of marginalized children.
TFFT team members constantly examine TFFT’s efforts and generate fresh, innovative ideas with the bold vision to improve Tanzania’s education system and to increase access to quality primary and secondary education. This is an organization that truly places children at its core, holds them in their hearts, and thoughtfully makes every decision with only the child’s’ best interest in mind. The TFFT team is proud to see the exponential growth of the TFFT scholars as a result of eleven years of TFFT’s programs, guidance, and support.
