Bethany Pre & Primary English Medium School

Heart to Care Tanzania is a non-profit organization that provides support for the Bethany Pre and Primary School located in Kisongo, a small village outside of Arusha, Tanzania. Fund-raising for the school began spring of 2017, construction started fall of 2017. The first school building and washrooms were completed that fall, and the doors opened on January 08, 2018, to admit the first 32 students.  The second school building to accommodate grades Pre K-7, was built this spring of 2018. We now have 76 children, 11 of them in the first grade, 19 in kindergarten, and 47 in pre-school. These children will grow up in our school that will continue through grade 7. Our Tanzanian government school registration number is EM. 17663.

Watch the below video to understand how this mission was not something Bethany, nor her family, looked to find. Emmanuel and Bethany were put together by God, and with the help of family and friends, it has become a reality!

Bethany Husby, Emmanuel Boaz and the Heart to Care Tanzania charity, believe that all children deserve a quality education. The charity is committed to be the steward of the resources entrusted to the organization by its donors, and is transparent in accountability.  You can be assured that 100% of your donations will go towards constructing the remaining Kitchen and Community Center building, supporting teacher’s salaries, purchasing school supplies, and  providing tuition resources.  Heart to Care Tanzania views education as the key to empowering a new generation to have better lives and to foster a more just and sustainable world. We believe that with God all things are possible!

I gave a talk at a 4th grade elementary school in Roseville, MN on Dec. 11th, 2018. The Falcon Heights Elementary 4th graders joined with the children at Bethany School in being pen pals! Here are the pictures of our children at the Bethany School. You can also see them on the CONTRIBUTE page. Thank you for the wonderful visit, Falcon Heights Elementary School 4th graders! Your enthusiasm was awesome!
