The top 25 students on the National Exams in Arusha district attend the Precious English Medium Primary School.
On October 6, 2017, we held our first graduation ceremony. All our seventh-grade students received their diplomas and are now enrolled in secondary boarding schools.
Precious Project began a new secondary school fund to pay tuitions for any graduate in need, as well as someday build our own secondary school.
Our campus exclusively uses solar energy now thanks to a small group of generous donors - and this saves us $1500 a year.
Precious Project was able to secure a $100,000 challenge grant from a generous donor by meeting the new donor criteria of the challenge.
We built dormitories for our fourth and seventh graders to prepare for the National Exams. For the seventh-grade students, these exams determine if they continue to attend school in Tanzania.
Our entire fifth-grade class of students each now have their own Ipads during class, whereas previously they had to share.
We expanded our farm to an acre and have been planting vegetables for the coming year.
We have so much to be grateful for when we review this past year. As we reflect on our progress, we are mindful that it was only made possible because of the generosity of our friends. We thank you for improving the world one mind at a time to build a stronger future for Africa. From all of us here at Precious Project, we wish you and your loved ones a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
