Located in Kogaja a village in Ikoma, Rorya, Mara, Tanzania, Africompassion Academy is basic school that sponsors 82 AIDS orphans. The school has been operating for some time in a basic rented building. Our long-term vision is to build a school on 7 acres and develop a K-12 liberal arts and industrial arts education compound that can serve as a model for education in rural Tanzania.
Africompassion Academy has been evicted without notice in breach of contract
Our landlord has broken our one year lease and we are forced to move. There are no other buildings suitable in the village for a school.
We have plans for a small school building and have some of the materials we need for construction on the land we already own. We need to raise about $30,000 to complete the construction.
The local public school has allowed us some space for two months for older students. We are using an unfinished house for the preschool aged children. The orphans are too poor to pay the requisite school fees for the public schools.
